Utility Commuter Bicycle
I could not find a bicycle at any price to do what I needed. Easy dismount; crank 5 inches forward to sit up straight; and a front rack that can handle 40 or more pounds without effecting the steering.
I had to design one and build it.
It took much more time and money that I ever thought possible. And I forgot to add a rear rack onto the frame so it could hold more weight than the aluminum racks.
The only thing that comes close is the Worksman Lowgravity bike and it requires a very expensive hub gear and possible Schlumpf crank set to get as wide range of gears as a mountain bike drive train.
I just wish some company like Sun Bicycles would start making bicycles like this. Or at least a custom frame builder could do it.
