  • A Seattle Commuter

    “This frame is underrated. People always rave about the [popular similar frame model we won't name]. Sure it's a great bike and what not, but I've ridden both and I like the DC better. Slightly lighter frame. Higher quality steel. Note I put on some 700x25c tires on them for my 15 mile crappy/rainy Seattle commute. For a steel bike, It's pretty quick and responsive. I don't even try to avoid potholes and rocks. ”
