My main commuter rig is an f500. I have trimed it down to a 1x9 and put 100psi, 26x1" tires on it. It rides as smooth as my road-specific bikes now. Personally, I would not get all caught up in switching to 700C. I used to be, but it turns out it really doesn't make that much difference.
Cheaper, probably. Lighter, I cant tell. By the time I put racks, bags, lights and the rest of the gear on it; mine aint light.
