Lighting systems: battery or dynamo.

Wheel sizes: 700C versus 26"/650B/etc. for touring

Wheel sizes: 26" or 29er for off-road

Using the term 'hybrid' as opposed to 'trekking', etc.

Saddle bag versus rear carrier

Short mudguards versus full length mudguards

Titanium versus steel

Titanium versus everything else
