I am commuter in the hilly state of Oregon. I ride 20 miles a day, 5 days a week, gaining 500' in elevation each way.
My ride is an older Jamis Quest Reynolds 853 frame. Truvativ Gigapipe BB, FSA Energy Triple 52/39/30 with a 12/25 Hyperglide in the back. Running Mavic CXP21s with rebuilt R100 hubs front and rear and a carbon front fork, Sachs down-tube shifters.
I built the bike from the frame up. She rides goods, but is a little noodley in the rear.
I have been reading the archives for sometime and I thought I'd join.
