+1 on this. for the kind of riding you seem to want to do the Surly is a better, more versatile choice. i saw the complete bikes at the shop the other day and they are totally dope. really wish they would have been available when i bought the frame i had to convert. you can put some pretty fat tires on the surly and hit the dirt if need be.
