I'm starting research for next summer. I'm going to put together a full touring bike. I'm leaning toward all steel luged frames particularly the Rivendell Atlantis. I would like to keep the cost around $1500 - $2000 (complete).
I was doing some research today and came up with the Mercian name.
Does anybody have expirience with either or both. I will be able to check out a friends Atlantis in a few weeks and I really like their website and philosophy. The Mercian stuff is beautiful and a bit cheaper... wish I could find out more on them.
Any insight would be helpful.
