OK, as I upgrade parts on my Lemond I'm starting to get a good selection of parts laying around the old shed. With my wife being a teacher, I should get to ride to work quite a bit this summer. This being the case I was thinking it might be a good idea (and fun) to build a commuter bike to ride. Living in Florida we get alot of wet weather in the summer, so I'm less than thrilled about riding my baby in that kind of mess. So, if building from scratch, what would be the things to look for in regard to reliability and resistance to bad weather?
