Pretty much anything Rivendell, but since I will not be able to afford one anytime soon (ever?), more realistic would be a Soma Saga frame that could slowly build up as the ultimate commuter/touring frame (I carry everything but the kitchen sink on my commute).

I've had a hankerin' for one of those myself for years as a "Treat yo-self!" commuter/errand bike.

If you want a potentially cheaper option, you might also consider the New Albion Privateer or Drake. I wanted to build up a spare parts hybrid and after a while of hemming and hawing at different frames I settled on that one and have got to say it is a favorite of mine and of a lot of other people who have ridden it. My guess is the Soma and the New Albion are made in the same factory with quite similar tubing but one is slightly less meaning more money to really build it up.

Mine is a 1x9 with XT rear derailleur (8 speed era), XTR Shifter and Tiagra Hollowtech II Cranks with Race Face NW chainring and has been an excellent commuter. Granted I have been collecting some nice parts over the years working in a shop but it was certainly an excellent build that could easily be replicated to a similar quality level since a lot of the stuff I used is older or is stuff still in production so either way you can find the exact or something similar or possibly improved from previous years.

I’m currently saving for a Surly Bridgeclub. My 29er is a little too small, and I want a new winter ride that’s not a full fattie. Soon, Bridgeclub, soon.

I've got my eye on a '70's Raleigh Super Course with Bluemels fenders. Has the Capella lugs too. Guy is asking $125 for it. Just cant spend that kinda money on a bike at this point. Hopefully it will still be available when I can scrape the money together.

It smells like a set up. Hire a private investigator...

I will look into that. OTOH, her purse and matching shoes collection continues to grow.

For me, that would be Ana Puga. Terry B's video of her tearing up Mexico City's streets was mesmerizing.
But, far as bikes go, how about a Velomobile. The DF. With winter coming, sure would be nice to not have frozen hands and feet
