a bike with a basket. to prevent sweaty back syndrome for the rest of the day from carrying your laptop and god knows what else in your backpack on the ride to work. with a lid on said basket to prevent the crack muffins in my area from doing a 'grab-by'. with a cover for the back wheel to prevent the mud trail up the behind. with a comfortable seat for reasons that I will not get into. with the ability to go a fairly good pace, thus preventing the 'everyone is passing me' feeling.
