    doesn't seem ergonomically feasible to me, unless the commute is just a mile or two, but if it works for you, more power to ya!

    Here is mine, Specialized Rockhopper 94 Sport.
    No need for fenders right now, maybe when summer will be over.

    I know a guy that round trips 12miles on a BMX, granted he modified a lot especially the gearing and it helps that he's only 5'5"

    BMX bikes contend with junky MTB's around here for "most common transport bike". Neither ever have functional brakes 9/10 times though...

    Che, looks pretty nice (love the bullhorns), but has that fork suffered an impact? It could be an illusion of the photography, but to my eye it looks like it bends back before sweeping forward.

    Yes it had, I don't know when or how, it must be the previous owner of the bike.
    I have the bike for a year and half, rode it almost 10.000 km and haven't got any problem with the fork, but I'm sure I will change it soon.

    Not to be rude, but the forks looks bent. ' sure hope it isn't.

    Some people don't need an optimal bike to commute on it. BMX is just fine for some people. It does the job. Just about any bike will take you places.

    That is definitely true; it just becomes a question of how far away the places are, and how comfortable/fast you can be getting there.

    Very sharp! I'm not fully set up yet, and I only have bad pics, but what the heck.

    My Frankenbike. It's more like an SUV versus commuter as I'm using it for bikepacking, commuting, grocery store runs and overall enjoyment. Old Bianchi mountain bike with no model name other than "Mountain". Fits great, works like a champ and a bit heavy. I'm not a fan of flat bars so my LBS had a set of drop bars from a demo model, converted it to a quill adapter and I picked up some Shimano Tourney STI shifters and voila. Still need a set of fenders and some commuter tires as those knobby tires create a whole lot of friction. Total blast to ride.

    My current commuter, and only bike actually, until my Gunnar Sport arrives!. A 2009 Bianchi Pista fixed gear, pretty much stock aside from the saddle and pedals. Usually just toss a backpack on and head out to school/work. 'Bout an 8 mile round trip with occasional elevations. Not too bad. Looking forward to having gears and being able to coast though! Will post pictures of the new steed when she gets here in a few more weeks.

    Weight is a poor indicator of condition, and over emphasized because there's not an easier index, but I'll venture that a 250# football player is likely fitter than most people with very favorable BMIs. Proponents of the BMI even had to come up with a category -- the fit fat -- to get around the statistical issues with the system.

    IMO, those Clydesdales who take up biking should focus less on the scale, and more on their belt size. This will usually show more progress and be less discouraging than the scale.
    Yeah. I don't weigh myself and have no idea if I've lost weight commuting, but I'm going to have to drill yet another extra hole in my belt soon. Can't complain about that.
