What is your perfect do all commuter bike?

It’s pretty obvious that the bike industry is making a big push to utilitarian bikes.

2008 Kona UTETo carry everything around, Surly has their Big Dummy complete with Xtracycle goodies. And now the 2008 Kona UTE is sporting similar characteristics.

Then you have plenty that are low maintenance singlespeed and fixed gear bikes like the Kona Paddywagon and Redline 925.

Raleigh Detour Deluxe HybridThe Raleigh Detour Deluxe is a nice hybrid complete with rechargeable lights and rear rack.

And if you missed it, QBP’s newest bike brand is Civia Cycles who “builds bikes for people who are passionate about cycling and the art of living. They are designed and engineered by people like you: people on the move; people who see bikes as serious transportation; people who make cycling a part of their lives.”

So I pose this question to you…

If you could create the perfect do all commuter bike, what would it look like?

Would it be a singlespeed? Have a huge carrying capacity? Rechargeable lighting system?

Leave your specs for your perfect commuting rig in the comments.
