Rivendell's Clem L is their high quality low slung top tube complete that slides in at a wildly affordable price point. I don't know about you, but I'd say for daily commuting/trail riding/all-arounding bicycle a step through with some big knobbies (or semi knobbies), fenders, and a set of V-brakes sounds pretty damn ideal. The Clem Complete is so affordable because Riv specs these bikes out with quality components straight out of Taiwan. That saves on a ton of overhead and unseen fees and dues. The Clem L comes mostly assembled and fully cabled. I built Cheech's Clem Complete when it arrived and it was joyously simple. All you have to supply to complete the full build out is a saddle, pedals, and grips. Those things are pretty personal anyway, chances are even if the Clem came with those parts I'd imagine a lot of people would be discarding them for their own preferred contact points. 
The following info I have borrowed from the Rivendell site as well as the photos (I didn't want to unpack one of these to shoot photos because they are packed so well from the factory):
