Lightweight Hybrid for Carrying Stuff ?

Looking for a lightweight hybrid for a daily rider that can carry stuff .
I plan on adding a front rack and Wald basket ,rear rack and pannier , Brooks sprung saddle ,and kickstand .
And at least 700x 42c tires .

You can add *all* of those accessories and upgrades to *any* hybrid from *any* manufacturer. With the basket, racks and panniers, *any* of those will be able to "Carry Stuff". *All* of the quality name-brands that you buy at a bike shop (versus the ones you buy at Wally's world or big-box or similar stores) will be lightweight.

So there you go, have at 'er. That's as narrow as anyone can make a recommendation given the criteria and detail you provided.

my errand "el cheapo" bike, short travel shock absorber in front, 26x1.5 tires, mech disc brakes, and rear rack. really, nothing to write home about, and sure enough, you can replace bike like this, practically with "any bike", once you start using it, then you may tweak it here and there as required.

so just get one you feel OK with, and start from there.

^^^ nice bike and it looks very useful!

as for the bike to haul stuff, if you are going to be carrying heavier items, try to get a lighter bike, maybe even a lighter road or touring bike. this way, you can haul more weight without weighing yourself down too much.
