colleague of mine (full time messenger) has one of these (tho it looks  a bit longer in the front..? the one in the pic looks very short) and he likes it. haven't ridden it. The rack in the front has decent space and it's still mostly like a normal bike in terms of weight etc, I mean you probably wouldn't want to carry a Bullit up some stairs or whatever.
 
ah I see it's some mini version, he has the regular. imo just go for that, or put some rack thing on a normal bike instead. the mini rack there seems like neither here nor there imho...

nah, the cargo isnt really an option, too long, no space to put, not to mention the price..and the front rack thingies are just good for something like 10kg (mini = max.125kg incl.driver)..frame kit mini is ~700€..well, that*s quite some dough. maybe i should go for their cargo rack (40€) and hope for the best. doing some catering/ bread thingies from time to time and would be nice to reduce stress levels on the delivery front. saw some foodora backpack clones on amazon..~80€..well..

originally built this bike in 2015 - surly steel frame, light weight mavic open pro custom made wheels + shimano 6800 groupset

 

rebuilt it three months ago with flat handle bars because drops were fucking up my neck and shoulders, couldn't imagine a better bike for commuting and light/ moderate touring  :wub:

i built a black cross check in 2015 (or maybe 2014?) and got hit and totalled about 6 months later. i then built a pacer frame up with cross check components but wish i'd just gotten another cross check. the seat post is currently froze in it so i'm just commuting no my single speed. the cold and wind has been absolutely awful the last few days. can't wait for the weekend.

First decent day of 2019 - a nice change from riding to work/class in the rain.

It was rainy, cold and windy but my new commuter bike has 44 / 16 gears so I went for a ride anyway.

 

Now I'm cold.

depends on the quality and quantity of snow. 0-5 cm of light powdery snow is ok for 35mm tires. anything more and/or wet snow calls for a mountain bike with wider tires.  studded, of course. 

 

the roads i use in the wintertime are pretty well maintained though
