    Must have:

    1. comfortable - provide riding in upright position; stack : reach ratio greater than or equal to 1.50

    2. Drivetrain with wide range of gears suitable for hills in the city;  the lowest gear inches at least 20. Range preferably from 18  to 110 gear inches. 

    3. Tires wide enough ( at least 40 mm) to absorb many bumps on Toronto roads and gravel - off road rides outside the city

    4. Long wheel-base to allow for panniers and stable ride

    5. Ability to mount mud guards

    Nice to have:

    1. Relatively light frame 

    2. Disc brakes (not hydraulic) 

    So far, I have twice accomplished all under "must have". "Nice to have" remains an elusive dream.

    What is your perfect bicycle?
