Today I completed my commuter bike build. I am not going to be doing my normal 15 mile loop through the countryside bike commute for a while. riding my road bike for a short commute takes too much time to put on the extra gear. This bike allows me to quickly get on it in street clothes and take a short ride to work rather slowly without breaking a sweat.
My goal has always been to keep one less car on the road. So this bike,, while it will not be my choice for riding 50 miles, it certainly is a bike that I will use on short trips to work and to the store. I can easily carry plenty of stuff in my bike bags without any balancing issues. The low profile of these bags re perfect for caring large bulky items.
