Hi all, I ran across this web page, http://www.commuterbicycle.com and it has some interesting information about commuter bikes. I am now 51 and weigh 250. Currently I ride a trek 7500 and like it but this idea of a shaft drive bike sounds interesting. I just took a job that is 6 miles to work each way and am seriously wanting to bike commute as much as possible. The trek obviously will work and I think probably one of the better bikes for it with a few mods such as better lights "fredy fenders" and probably some new tires since it hasn't had any in several years. I guess I just saw this shaft drive and want to try it, the price is very good, around $600, and was just wondering if any one had any experiance with any of the brand listed. The author mentioned one that is only sold in England and a sent them and e-mail but no response at this time.
any comments are appreciated, thanks for your help
