Mine would have 700 x 38 to 40c street friendly tires on it, lock out forks with at least
80mm of travel, I would like disk brakes, ( for the days off road in the mud ). A large gear range, 27 speed would not hurt my feelings,
Upright riding style, suspension seat
post, comfort saddle, sealed bearings, nice 32 spoke rims, standard quality pedals, Topeak
rack, with trunk bag, large grips, cycle meter, good lighting for night riding, weigh around
35 pounds with all extras...and fit me like a glove, I like the larger frames, but do not want
to feel stretched out. And all this for under say
I'm still looking.
I guess I want it all, commute to town, road ride, ( fast is not a priority, but do not want
to peddle a MTB ), Go off road with confidence, and light touring, just a do it all in one Bike....Richard BTW, there are no wrong answers, only what you prefer.
