    Although not a commuter, I should add that this is a bike that I bought (mostly) for aesthetic reasons. Even though I bought it because I like the look, I love how it rides and it gets a lot of trail...

    It's certainly not practical for everyone, but this is what I did. I made a list of must have items:
    - Steel to help tame the roads (maybe aesthetic reasons as well)
    - Ability to fit 32mm tires to...

    Love the Unit! Here's mine, although I definitely prefer riding it on dirt over pavement.

    I've not used Chrome shoes before, so I'm just throwing this out there. I do like 5 10 Dirtbags. They are a similar style and have a great non-slip sole. Dirtbag

    Excellent! That Cannondale was my first real MTB! I put a Manitou 2 shock on it and rode it like crazy. I think my sister may still have it in her garage.

    I'm about 170, so not too light, but I'll put the GP4000s on my radar while I decide what to do. For now, I've put my old tires back on, but they're getting close to needing replacement.

    Good news! Since JensonUSA has a nice return policy, I'll be able to return them and start my search for another set of tires.

    There's about 7 folks that commute semi-regularly in my office. 4 of us decided to do a Bike and Brew tour after work yesterday. We visited 4 breweries and 1 beer bar, with about 25 miles of riding...

    I suspect that you're right and this is the culprit. I don't remember the width of my rim offhand, but I know that it is less than 20mm (I'll measure it when I get home later). I did check before...

    The max pressure on the Gatorskins is 95. I ran the 28s at 80-85 with no issues. The reason I wanted to go with a wider tire was to run a lower pressure and smooth out the ride. I'll give it a shot,...

    The beads certainly seem to be seated. I've actually had a couple of flats (old/bad rim tape, since fixed, not the tire's fault), so they have been reset a couple of times in front. I've run them as...

    If you can fit them, how about some 32mm cyclocross tires? My friend has some Richey Speedmax tires on his cross check that he uses for commuting and is really happy with them.

    I put my bike back together last night after powder coating it OD green. Pretty happy how it turned out, so I decided to snap a couple of photos at my favorite spot on my commute home.
