Good question - Because my memory is sieve-like I can't remember exactly what I specced a few years ago - I think I was after an m2l and could only find s bikes at the time so they built up what I needed plus extra changes (seat, grips etc), that day.
I may have just got lucky but I was impressed! SJS is now my touring bits and pieces place of choice.
How much for your wife's m6l??
