Looks like you mean their Bryant http://civiacycles.com/bikes/bryant/

I'd say it would depend on how dainty the 700's are, the fancier the lacing and fewer the spokes, the less I'd trust them. I'd be more concerned with running out of gears. One advantage to mountain...

5. Don't worry about it.

Personally, I...

+1 for Surly. I love my LHT. The long wheel base makes it sluggish in the turns, tends to go wide when you're going fast. Still catches me off guard sometimes. I like how it handles, but worth...
