New commuter / winter steed
As I'm relocating and will have a longer daily commute than I'd like to do on a single speed, I'm in the market for a fresh steed. (Well it's as good a reason as any, n+1 and all that) I'm well aware of the 'try and see which one you like best' mantra but I have a shortlist and would like feedback and experience from anyone who has owned or ridden the following:
Genesis Equilibrium 853
Chickens frames handbuilt Colombus life lugged.
I'm not in the market for carbon, I have enough of those so steel / alloy alternatives with clearance for mudguards considered. I'm also after frameset only as it's being built up with Athena.
Thanks in advance!
