Gunnar Crosshairs is a great steel option. Harvest some parts from your other bikes, fill in new parts as needed. Light for steel, eyelets if you need them. Don't think there's a disc option...

The Dahon MU XL looks to be quite a tasty ride, probably a little more practical for commuting than the speed pro and its skinny weakish tires. Love BF and the tikit looks very nice, that would be a...
