    Right, then - how about this one? With the Rohloff hub, and high-end lights, etc. this bike would be $5K+, but this is the commuter bike I covet

    Yup. One of my first posts on this thread was about the Tout Terrain Amber, which is the 700c version of the Metro. I'd use an Alfine11 hub and drop bars, but the idea is similar. A buddy of mine has the 26" wheeled version decked out nicely. Truly lovely and useful bikes.

    Since many on here like good looking steel with nice lugs... I'm sure many have seen the 2009 Schwinn Paramount that was made of all stainless Reynolds 953. Truly a phenom (and $7K for the frameset). Man I wish I'd won the raffle!

    OK, that might make me like aluminum. MAYBE.

    SSCX seems to be all the rage. The Civilan Le Roi Le Veut is a less expensive cromoly / chain version:

    Yeah I've seen the Civilian line-up but not a big fan of their BIG FRENCH WORD theme.

    The Spot frame is "only" $1400 though. Surely supplying your own Gates Centertrack drive parts, fork (the Spot one is Al steerer-carbon legs, so plenty of other similar on the market) BB7s, crank, wheelset, and other standard parts you could build it for less than $3400? People often end up with their own saddle and handlebars / wrap anyway, and brake levers can be pretty cheap too.
