    Looks to me like the new iteration of the Nashbar Daytrekker (11L capacity). I used to commute with the previous version, which was even smaller at 7.9L. But perfect if all you have to carry is...

    I'm not seeing "religiously" in your 3 categories. There is "consistently AND willing to pay for lighter/ventier".

    I am a consistent helmet-wearer, but way too cheap to consider lighter/ventier as...

    I'm suggesting that people in those groups are (a) rare in the commuting subforum (which is very safety-oriented), (b) not evident to me in this thread (except for yourself)

    Here's the only thread...

    I don't actually have any experience with knard, but just looking at the tread I would guess not too fast on pavement. I was going to suggest you look at Straggler instead of CC, for the disc brakes,...

    Ah, sticky duct tape, that's a good point. That stuff does seem to sweat out its adhesive. Maybe stick with higher quality "gaffer's tape"? But that stuff is pretty spendy, and if you go cheap on it,...
