Hello from Northern Ireland
I have a dilemma, i want to build a bike to use for winter miles, touring and occasional cyclocross/trail riding.
I have narrowed my search down to 2 framesets (i have all the bits to build it up):
The Surly Travellers Check - £820
S and S couplings, 132.5mm spacing, canti brakes, roughly 3kg, 2 bottle bosses, rear rack mounts, massive tyre clearance, steel
The Sabbath Silk Route - £850
Titanium, roughly 2.5kg, 3 bottle bosses, front and beefier rear rack mounts, 135mm spacing, canti brakes, clearance up to 38c
The Sabbath will cost me more to build up as il need a new wheelset (135mm hub) and it does not have s and s coulpings, but its lighter, looks real nice too and has more mounting options.
I dont know what to do, help me!
