    butchers bikes / cycle truck / Short John comparison

    Has anyone ever done a review of these types of bikes, a like for like comparison?

    Would quite like to get one, quite liking the Soma Tradesman.

    I was just on the Soma website this week looking at the tradesman, but can't get over a price point of $599....for $400 more, I can have a complete Civia Halstead. You lose a disc brake in the back, but it's less expensive and serves the same purpose.

    Either way, good luck on your search....I still haven't found a good review comparing bikes.

    Civia Halstead is on sale now for $799....tempting, very tempting. I can't believe no one has a comment on this topic. I guess most people have xtracycles or front and rear racks.
