Sturdy commuter bike

I saw this bike in town yesterday. This looks like a very nice commuting bike without spending thousands on it. It is a single speed with a chain tensioner. It is comprised of a variety of
useful parts including:
Soma cross frame
Salsa disk mount fork
Front disk brake
Dyno hub with lights
Rear rack
Studded snow tires
Ortlieb panniers
One good lock
It is not as beautiful, or flexible, as this very nice commuter from IF but you might not mind parking it in places where you would never leave your Ti IF.
