Found this interesting bike. Designed as a commuter / city bike. 8 speed internal hub, 32 mm tires, fenders, real leather grips. Cromoly steel frame. Nice classic design. IMHO, this would be a nice bike to cruise around on.
They made 3-speed and 8-speed mixte frames too: http://www.linusbike.com/models/mixte-8/
I like seeing bikes like these in production. And at reasonable prices too. The Roadster 8 is $839. The single speed Roadster Classic is just $449.
