Beautiful rigs! Very clean and detailed. Congrats on making the jump. My primary commuters are pretty similar. My 'mule' is this bike: http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/..._cross_cx2.htm
I use it for heavily loaded commuting and utilitarian needs. Only the rack and bags are on the rear. Full coverage fenders, lights, framepump, toolkit, chaintool, etc. complete the rig. It's loaded w/a weeks worth of clothes/food on Mondays. Gearing is 50/40-26x12
My 'fast bike' is an early 80s Fuji Del-Rey fg conversion I had sb/pc as well. The frame was nicked up. I use a seatpost rack/expandable trunk bag combo for bringing my work clothes home and carrying my wb/id/toolkit, etc. Frame pump is held on w/cable-ties...I know it looks like ****, but I've got a friend who owns a bike shop and were going to 'tap' a set of holes for a wb holder and pump mount. At least the cable-ties are black matching the bike.
Oh yeah, it's, also got SKS Raceblades that are effective for wet streets and light rain, but I'm going full coverage as soon as fundage becomes available. Gearing is 48x16. Both bikes are equipped w/Schwable Marathon Plus. 28mm and 25mm, respectively.
Wish I was tech savvy enough to post pics.
