I see quite a few people here that seem to have a disdain for roadies in general. They put down the clothes we wear and the fact that we don't like kickstands or fenders on our bikes. I know there are many here who have beater bikes with full racks and paniers for commuting and I have no problem with that, I'm just curious who here commutes on a road bike.
Me, I have two road bikes. Both have double cranksets 53/39, one is a 9spd 13/26 and the other a 10spd 12/25. The 9spd bike is steel and the 10spd bike is carbon fiber and both have 700x23 tires. I've ridden both to work many many times and find them to be fast efficient commuter bikes. Then again, it rarely rains here in SoCal, I ride 100% on paved roads and I can shower at work.
BTW-I wear roadie clothes when I commute but do carry a backpack with a polo shirt, underwear and socks for work. I keep a pair of shoes, belt and a pair of slacks I change out when I drive in. I also keep soap and deodorant at work along with a towel.
