Posting this to get feedback but I think I now know enough to work out what I should get.  For those who've not read my rambling

Usage: All year round daily commute of ~12 miles of badly maintained canal path and ~3 miles of road.  No significant hills.

Brakes - yes, I need some.  Doesn't really matter what they are as no extreme use
Wheels - bigger is faster, this is a good thing
Tyres - fatter is better off road, thinner better on road.  More important to have grip all the way so looking fairly fat (2.35"?)  Summer and winter sets would be good.  Tubeless is more puncture resistant
Gears - don't need low gears as no climbing but will probably land up with them anyway.  Any 2xX or 3xX setup should have what I need
Suspension - rear not required but shouldn't be a problem as no climbing.  Lockout for the front would be good for the road bit
Handlebars - the weirder looking the better so more positions available.  Will have to be added as bendy bars are only standard on road focused bikes
Frame - downhill frames are too heavy.  Old steel is also heavy and is more likely to have rust issues, so best stick to alu/alloy frames
Mudguards  - 'old person style' mudguards are available separately but need forks with eyelets and space above the tyre.  Matching rear mudguards won't work with suspension

Sounds like I'm describing a new 'gravel' bike or a used XC hardtail?

Those of us who primarily frequent DT have discussed this very thing and it seems that there is this perception of DT as being elitist to put it mildly. On the subject of "keebtalk", I'll never join so long as the word "keeb" remains in the name. That word is definitely one of the stupidest things to ever come out of this hobby. Or maybe I'm just being too "elitist", amd I should start calling skating stores "skeeb" stores or winter sports stores "sneeb" stores.  :rolleyes:

That is such a Deskthority response.   :rolleyes:
 
 
To be fair, he's also writing 'China' in a way that's been incorrect since the 50's, so maybe take it with a grain of salt.

My bike comea from the time when rim brakes and cables were common. Can't say that I've ever had an issue with stopping. Being able to easily remove the front wheel in 20 seconds is a nice bonus.

Sorry for the waiting

I asked Eve 2-3 times a week and he is still packing. He plan to ship all boards rather than batches to me so I think I can receive next week.
