My previous post about my commuter has had a ton of hits. Obviously a lot of people are interested in fitting these, or similar, types of bicycles as commuters. I've continued to ride mine more than I ride anything else. In the event that I ever had to have just one bike this would be a strong candidate. Anything fancier would actually be worse- a nicer bike would be more likely to be stolen, would make me worry about wearing it out/scratching/denting it etc., and truly wouldn't ride any better. As shown above it has changed a bit since early last winter. Notably I have upgraded the front wheel to a 29er wheel made by dtswiss for specialized. I've also switched to a shorter stem with some relatively short-reach, shallow drop, bars. Shifting is now handed with a 7800 DA front unit and an older suntour rear shifter. I've also added a 30t chainring. The other major change is the flat pedals- they will go away again as we move into fall and I shift again to doing more training on this bike rather than just transportation cycling.
Here are a few more quick pictures from my commute
