I was just looking for info to freshen up my knowledge, amazingly found this discussion in 2020!!
One thing led to another a couple of years ago and I bought the
last Spa cycles 58cm frameset. Originally considering a cheap Planet X Brevet in sale as a cheap commuter. I found discussions like this and bought the 631 Audax. Problem is it's brief has shifted to a nice day bike!
I'm not really a road rider, more MTB and urban stuff and once commuter, so I've not got around to building it yet with other projects and life stuff in the way. I'd hope to have casual summer short blasts out on it...
I'm not sure if I'd be better off with a trendy gravel bike, I'm not used to centre pull calipers (or drops!), more experience with Canti and V brakes so that was the thing missing off the spec for me... got some long reach Tektro to fit. Will post a pic later if people are interested.
