I always wanted a touring bike and the Sutra was at the top of the list. Now with these changes I think I found my next steel bike. I know it will be a tank but thats ok with me.
What is an ET2 hanger?

Did you buy one?

With a Fargo in the family and not enough bikes I've been looking at lighter duty bikes. A LBS is tempting me with a bargain on one of these over some other possibilities.

I recognize the build kit advantages this has over a Vaya, but test riding a Vaya with one of these, Rove ST and a Breezer I sure like the Vaya fit.

Parts can be replaced, but fit rules all.
