Fairdale Weekender frame is one to look into. It's designed to carry bags and allows heel clearence for panniers. Tough to put fenders on if you like big balloon tires.

Contrary to popular beliefs and movies, San Francisco is relatively flat. The hills are steep but there's easy routes around them. And honestly, I don't hang out with people that "live up on the...

Waiting on some Paul Components Mini-motos and a VO bottom bracket. But other than that, it's done for a little bit.

Not sure if you understand the point of a trailer. Or if you've ever ridden with a trailer. Curious what trailer you've used.

I own this bike. With the stock Kysrium wheels it rode like hell. Personally, I hate that wheelset so I put some DT Swiss's on it. Now it rides 10x better. At $3000 you aren't going to go wrong.
