so i just want opinions, discussion, whatnot... if there's already a thread for this feel free to close.
what about something like this?
not terribly high end but still nice components... good range of gears, and it's light and responsive for dealing with traffic. problems- no full fenders or whatnot.
my feeling is, if you're commuting 30 miles, it's going to suck to be on something with fenders and knobby tires.
