I think I stuck this in the wrong thread...
Cannondale Quick 6; Handles 230lb me, and 50 lbs of groceries or whatever without complaint; and yet, unloaded, fairly fast able to hold 15-19 mph without overly stressing the rider.
Interesting oddities.. added garage door opener single push button, R-A-M mount for GPS/phone. The paniers are unfancy REI stuff, but quite durable. Front paniers, I inserted small plastic trash cans that provide water proof carriage for wet stuff (fished fish, bought meat, dairy, etc).
This bike replaced a Jamis hybrid that I'd completely worn out the wheels and freewheel, but used components that couldn't reasonably be replaced (and didn't have rear quick release anyway; so nice upgrade).
