I have been reading this forum for a while and really like this cycling community. Great advice and good humor.
I live in Vancouver, B.C. and have been commuting by bicycle for over 20 years. My commute is 20K a day and have not missed to many days in all these years. The weather here has a lot to do with that. Not too many snowy days,but lots of rain in the winter.
I currently use a Kona Explosiv for commuting and ride a Marinoni "ciclo" on weekends. The Marinoni can also been used for light touring. It has all the eyelets needed.
many happy miles
