I'm moving countries in a few weeks to somewhere pancake flat. I likely won't take the 20" with me, so before I go I aim to learn to idle and be comfortable riding longer distances.

I'm looking for something I can both commute on (with backpack) and ride on weekends for exercise (ideally 10-15 mph for 1-2 hours) and to explore.

I had in mind getting a 29 with 90-100 mm cranks arms.
Any advice or other factors I should consider when looking for a uni?
