I don't plan on moving to disk or electronic, don't hate just no need, disc could change if I were in a wetter steeper area in the future

Not moving from steel frames

hate fugly threadless stems and severly sloping top tubes.....aesthetics based hate

Can't see ever going tubeless, ever. Tubies or clincher with tubes for me
This is me with three slight adjustments:
I bought three Athena 11 Speed Ultra Torque Silver groupsets when they came out.
I own a one titanium I love.
My back is getting slowly worse and I can imagine a step through frame in the future.
