It is my 3rd week commuting to work. I just wanted to thank all of the experienced riders for their posts. Your posts have taken a lot of the guesswork out of commuting and have helped make starting off go smooth.
I see why you all get hooked on this so easy. I've had a blast riding to work every day. I find myself looking forward to waking up every day to ride, instead of having to drag myself out of bed to drive to work. I ride 8 miles each way, and have tried to stretch the ride home into a 20 miler, two or three days a week. I'm getting used to riding miles on a mountain bike with slicks instead of a lighter weight road bike. The mountain bike seems to be better suited for commuting. Thanks again for the good info.
