The A. Homer Hilsen was born in 2005 and filled the humongous gap between race-only road bikes and mountain bikes. It redirected RBW's approach to bikes and riding and created their "country bike" category (now replaced by mainstream bike makers who bafflingly didn't see the need for roadish bikes with more tire clearance until their competitors started selling"gravel bikes").
Homers are at home on paved or unpaved roads, credit-card tours centuries, and brevets - so the only thing keeping it from being good for everything is the size of the tire it can fit. Homer's go up to 45mm, which for a roadish bike, is seriously phenomenal, so no need to get greedy and wish for more.
Take advantage of the clearance built into it, and start with a 38 to 42mm tire. Go bigger or smaller next time, if you feel like you must. Also, put a small rack in the front or the back, and at least one bag on it.
If you want speed on the road with the versatility to tour or ride dirt now and then, A. Homer Hilsen is perfect for you.
The A. Homer Hilsen wheel sizes vary according to the size of the frame;
