Hey there inmates, What would be your choice of a ST bike in mid-500 lb range? The bike should accomodate either factory or aftermarket hard side panniers. This is an ideal weight for a bike for me, which is not too light so as to be unstable at side wind and not too heavy to be cumbersome at parking lot speed. At this weight if you drop it alone in a remote area, you can still pick it up all by yourself. Bikes in this weight range also seem to fit my physical attributes as well. I'm 5'9" with 30" inseam.
