I'm 6'2", 330+, and I've got a 3mi. (each way) commute. If I were still living in Florida or New Orleans (flatland), I could do that with no hands on a single speed beach cruiser. I'm living in New England, and there are some "San Francisco" big hills between here and there and back again, combined with craptastic New England roads. (I once saw a pot-hole eat a city bus. It was even making "om-nom-nom" noises.)
I'm thinking steel frame hybrid, hard-tail, fixed fork, with 29" wheels, and I'm thinking "cheap, but not that cheap", so I'm thinking Kona Smoke, and updgrade the parts as need and budget allow.
Is this sound reasoning? Any alternatives I'm overlooking in the same price bracket? What's the first thing I should look at upgrading, to make the commute more comfortable and the bike more robust?
