I'm building a commuter (theoretical until my leg heals!) and the main features need to be:
- non-steel (rust)
- Discs (durability)
- Full length Mudguards
- 700c wheels (long distance & road)
- Good handling (not a lanky BB and wierd head angle)
- low maintenence compontnts
How would you do it - adapt a 29er? Cyclocross? 29er forks? Hub Gear? Belt drive? Drop bars?
The idea of starting this thread is to get other peoples opinions / ideas / experience in one place as I know I'm not alone in wanting to make the ideal commuter! Show me if you have already done it!
