Ok, so I made my first commute today on my Ibex Corrida. Man, it was awesome. Now I don't have anything nearly as long as most of you on here. My commute was like a matter of 1 mile one way. So it was pretty easy. But it was just real nice to get out of the truck and just ride to work. No major distractions. Just free road. No gas prices. It feels good. When I got to work, everyone laughed. But most people there thought it was actually kinda cool. My goal is to give up driving so much and riding 90% of the time. The driving will come in when I am with my lady or making big errands. If there is anyone out there looking for a good affordable commuter bike, check out ibexbikes.com . They have amazing prices with awesome components. It would really be hard to beat their deals. One thing though, I already know I have to change saddles. This one is way to uncomfortable. Maybe a Brooks?
Another thing is, I need to get a light. Since I dont go to work till 5:00 P.M. and don't get off till Midnight or so, I need a light for the night riding.
Thanks for all the info everyone is giving.
