Nice horse you got there...
That's my style of ride there.
makes me wanna rethink my handle bars
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.

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.

Enjoy the ride
2002 Bianchi Brava that I paid too much for. Gets me to work and the ladies', however.

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.
Your brain is you, you should protect it.
That's a beautiful fixie!
This is my 1963 Higgins Roadster Trike one wheel drive. Its a lovely commuter and really nice to ride.
BMI does a pretty good job with most people of typical fitness but it's very misleading with both skinny couch potatoes and athletic sorts. And it's not going to do a good job reflecting lifestyle changes that take you from the fat couch potato category to the athlete category. You could see no change in BMI doing that.

Oh! I confused BMI with percentage of body fat. What about that? There are machines that use ultrasound or something like that which quickly measure your fat fraction by measuring how much vibration comes back to the source.
When you have your true BMI done. They actually take measurements of your neck, chest, waist, arms, and legs. These measurements and your height and weight gives you your true BMI. Much more accurate than those apps and weight machines.
With that being said, watching your belt size go down is a lot easier.

The 1990 Stumpjumper that I got back from the powder coater on Friday and built up Saturday. Took it out on the trails for 20 miles yesterday. A joy to ride. Does make me wish I had blue Ortliebs instead of red.
Don't complain about the weather and cower in fear. It's all good weather. Just different.
Heres my everyday commuter!
I bike about 7 miles to work, i also use this bike for all my grocery shopping too.
Sorry i dont have a closer picture! its an early 2000's specialized crossroads.
Its not my favorite bike but i got it for free and its super light and comfortable, perfect for commuting.
