    Brodie Voltage vs. Dynamo

    I am thinking of buying a Brodie commuting bike and would like to hear some of your opinions on whether the Dynamo is worth the extra money. The Voltage is 499 and the Dynamo 749.
    I am a fair weather rider, maybe 1 day a week to work, but I will be doing the Ride to Conquer Cancer (Vancouver to Seattle). I know the Dynamo has better shifters and brakes but are they worth it for someone who is not hardcore.
    Thanks for your thoughts

    IMHO,I'd say yes,if you can afford the Dynamo get one. Not only does it have better bits,but the chainstay mounted rear disc and fork lowrider mounts will make mounting fenders and racks much easier.
