It's hard to say how many miles I ride a day on average for my job. Maybe somewhere between 20-30? As for outside of work, I ride to wherever I need to get to, so it really varies, but being in DC, I never really to ride more than 5 miles at a time.
My main ride is a 1987 Bianchi Brava that I converted into a single speed. 46/16t gear ratio. Shimano 105 crank, brakes, and levers. Bontrager race saddle. I recently went to 700x28c tires.
My backup bike is a 1987 Peugeot Triathlon that I paid way too much for it from a guy who rehabbed it, and has been nothing but trouble. It came with mostly Shimano 105 components, but I've had to change out a lot of the components. Now I'm reworking it, thinking about fitting it with fenders and cyclocross tires for winter riding.
