what kind of bike to build?

I've got a need for a casual errand/ fun ride/ transportation bike.

I've also got a DeBernardi frame and a garage-load of parts. The wheels will be Rolf Vectors with Specialized 26c armadillos, and the pedals will be Time ATACs.

So the question is; what shape will this bike be?
1) Singlespeed or 9 speed (one chainring with a guard for pants).
2) Flat bar, drop bar (I'll never be on the drops), Salsa Cyclocross bar or Time Trial horn bar with no clip-ons?
3) cages or no? (I'll always have a bag with me)

singlespeed

Mustache bars

cages? assuming you mean bottle cages, then yes. you can always use em for a battery if you add lights, but I like having a h2o bottle handy.

I also vote for planet bike freddy fenders, even though they werent listed as a question/option.
