It's not a great way to come out of Bikeforums hibernation because I know this post has been made countless times before but here it comes again.
I'm looking for a frame. I'm short, I need a 48cm frame ( bb -> seatpost ) and that is limiting me a bit (Somas are bigger, IROs are bigger, etc). Thus far I'm looking at a Surly Steamroller or p'raps an Olmo Gara Pista. Anyone have any advice for me with regards to them? Does anyone know of anything stronger, cheaper, or of better value than either of them?
So far it looks like my money is on the SSroller but I'm open to other options. Any input is greatly appreciated!
