So I've been commuting on this bike since July, and have been slowly fixing it up.
Good tires (38mm Michelin City tires), riser bars, index shifters, blinky lights.
And it had both a Burley alternative hitch, and a TAdams Trail-a-Bike.
Monday morning I went out to ride to work, and it was gone...The first in a wave of stolen bikes in my neighborhood. (I think 10 stolen in the last week).
So I fixed up my old Giant to commute on (thanks to the very awesome guys at Bunnyhop, who did it that afternoon)--but I was displeased.
