    I started with a mountain bike and got a flat bar road bike for around town or when I didn't feel like loading up and heading for the trails.

    I'm just saying; this is pretty much exactly why the tricross and other "adventure road/ touring" bikes were created. You usually go slower on rough roads or at night, which makes the aero tuck less...

    Correct. Specialized Armadillos come in 25 and 28mm sizes, which should fit most road bikes (piggybacking off info from your other thread). They're completely smooth and won't slow you down enough to...

    for a commuter i'd stick with 9 speed. the chains and cassettes are cheaper compared to 10 speed stuff. and yes, shimano is still making 9 speed stuff. you can buy a brand new road bike with 9 speed.
