Yes, my commute is 16 miles each way, so 32 miles a day.
On the trail, I find SS to be faster (and less energy) than geared but am not expecting the same on the road. Of course, I didn't expect it on the trail either.
What gearing are you running on that Marlin? My '12 GF Rig (same bike?) is 34/18 on 2.35 Nobby Nics = about 55 gear-inches. The ECR is 44/22 on Knards = about 60 gear-inches.
I'm worried about wind which is why I geared short.
