Bikes should be steel - not aluminium or carbon fibre!
Here's my Surly Pacer. Another steel bike! - they feel so good!The components came straight from the Bob Jackson (except the brakes which are long reach calipers to allow for the Surly's mudguard clearance).
A lovely warm March afternoon - perfect for a quick 20 miler! The bike felt great and I was glad to see the back of the winter weather.
