Adam's commuter was inspired by the style of old French porteur bicycles. The front rack was built to carry a 50+ pound load, and on the road side has a bright halogen light that is powered by the front generator hub. The light wiring runs internally through the rack. This bicycle also boasts a single stem mounted shifter and a 1 X 9 gearing -- very simple, clean and perfect for city riding. Adam's bicycle is very utilitarian, uncomplicated, and has a distinctive classic feel.
