Hey Hardtail people, this probably breaks a rule or four, but don't care.

I have my brain stuck on this Surly Lowside as a beach ride, cause I don't like locking up a hardtail worth 1000s of bucks. Any other similar frame steel rigid bikes you'd recco for riding to the pub?

We The People Avenger?

Build a custom Marino with old school standards (135mm rear dropouts/26in wheels) to get cheap used parts?

Too much effort and sentimental value would go into something like that IMO. Go with a beater off of Craigslist. Then throw some outdated bits on it. I have a beater steel ride I paid $100 for with old ass chromag bits on it. If it ever got stolen I’d be like, meh... time to Uber home I guess

I hear you on the beater, but I spent years on bikes I hated. Also I have these rad white industries hubs which I can't bear to part with even though they say 'steal me' haha

Most antiquated hardtails have great geo for pub use

My old Chromag now ferries me to the beach pub and also has a set of slicks for road rash duties

The only spare frame I'll have is a Ti Middlechild haha, so I'm trying to avoid making that a pub bike
