Chris' Civia Bryant

I’ve been wanting to build up the ultimate commuter for some time now. Originally, I was stoked on the Civia Hyland. When I was ready to pull the trigger, they stopped producing it. This changed my direction to the Bryant. It was the most bang for the buck and is an attractive bike too. I fashioned the front end after Gier Ander’s Civia Hyland. I really loved his use of the rack to mount a front light and a basket. Gier’s advice on how useful a simple basket can be, had me sold. There’s a basket on the way, but I haven’t mounted it yet. An Alfine 11 speed was considered but it was too much for the budget right now. I’ll probably want it in the future for the hills of Encinitas, CA. Otherwise, I’m stoked on everything else. It rides like a dream and I can’t wait to put many thousands of miles on it.
