thanks for all the advice everyone.have ordered the duster mid steel bike (and am going to swap with my anthem x2.i know it sounds crazy
to be honest i don't have the sort of money to buy a titanium/custom steel right away (was going to p'x the frame then pay over time for the ti frame.this way i just swap my bike for it. i have really been looking towards getting back to a steel ht (from my old marin days 1992 eldridge grade
they have got great reviews (as the steel bikes are made of the same tange prestige that my marin was/also looks retro/modern which charge seems to do well. i plan to upgrade as funds allow,hopefully to go ti eventually.phew
(sorry for the long winded explanation
p.s when i get it ,will post some pics on the after 1998 section for anyone who is interested.
