I think Kirin lager is the oldest Japanese beer. Says something like that on the can. Keep it classy.
(comparatively) low cost backpack with comfort and decent capacity -> recommend Chrome Ranchero.
if you have the cash and want "the one bag" -> get the MW Vandal.
I have both, like both.
Black is fastest, white is best looking.
Agreed. It's kind of like a "red-eye" or depth-charge. (Which is what I drink on the road).
Swobo Sanchez XS works pretty well (700c). It is tough to find these smaller frames on short notice, but if you troll CL for a week or two you should see some stuff pop up.
What's a suspension harness? Are you talking about the adjusting straps at the top of the shoulder straps? (like the one's the Vandal has?)

Yes easy to clean. Three metal pieces, just rinse between using (and wipe with p-towel when coffee buildup exceeds your threshold)
Not percolators, the moka pots are stovetop espresso makers....
I prefer the stainless 204370Moka pot for home (and camping) use.

Umm, i have seen a couple suggestions. Some are even steel frames. :) Get the soma. Did you miss the cream city suggestion?

Milwaukee Cream City (not lugged, but $650, & tigged at Waterford factory)
The idea is to spin, but keep it aerobic. You go anaerobic when you have to stand up and mash.
My commute was short, and I wanted more workout. Peeps told me it was fun. It is fun, and I get more workout.
I have beat the crap out of my atacs, and they still work. (don't have eggbeaters)
Yeah, that's all I had in the box at the moment. They are goofy. Drops are better for me in the wind or on flats, but I can't climb as well with them. Since I need to climb a lot, I will probably...
Here it is with drops then :)
approx 3.7 pounds.
I have a set of porteur bars, and a set of ergo drops. I will be trying the drops next.
I got a new frame and crankset. (and headset/BB)
moar pics in bike pic thread.
New frame, crankset, cog, and some parts from the box.
You can ditch the rear brake.
