  • Room for 38s plus fenders. 40 even. More even.
  • Speaking of fenders, full coverage with mud flaps
  • While we're at it, eyelets for fenders and racks
  • Fork mounts for a front rando rack
  • Three water bottle mounts
  • 700c wheels. I'm tall and there's plenty tire selection at 700c.
  • Generator hub lighting front and rear.
  • Headlamp on the front rack
  • Rechargeable 2nd headlight on the bars for high beam.
  • Generator tail light mounted on the rear fender.
  • Second battery powered tail-light on the seatpost
  • Gearing will be low low low. Did I mention low? I want to spin at 5 mph.
  • Coupled for travel
  • Cable shifters
  • Disc brakes
  • Shallow flared drop bars
  • Tubeless ready, shallow v, alloy, black, no sticker rims
  • Wahoo Element GPS
  • Handlebar bag
  • Under-seat bag
  • Chain hanger on the seatstay. Because I like them.
  • Pump peg and frame pump, if such things still exist.
  • Externally routed cables with cable stops and maximum exposed inner wire
Things to consider
  • Hydraulic or mechanical discs. Depends on coupler technology.
  • Paint matching custom metal fenders or replacable off-the-shelf fenders
  • Frame pump mounting location.
  • Frame and fork material. Tending toward steel/carbon.
