    And to clarify, according to the Time, Speed and Distance Calculator, a 9'13" 5K is 20.225463761793872 MPH.

    You're still over 20.

    Get the aero wheels.

    By my calculations, a nine-minute five-K is 20.5 mph. So you're over the 20 mph barrier. Get the aero wheels.

    Studded snow tires. It's ice you have to worry about, and studs conquer ice.

    Get the ones with carbide studs--they'll last forever. The cheap ones with steel studs wear within weeks on asphalt....

    The thing to keep in mind is that they may be between intervals, or on a recovery ride.

    I too subscribe to the best bike for the commuter bike theory, since between 65% and 75% of my annual miles/rides/hours are commuting. (Varies a bit by year.)

    My primary commuter is a CX/Light touring mix. I find it perfect for the type of riding you describe. Its only fault is paint.

    First, men are not machines. There is a natural rise and fall in our abilities. An ebb and flow. That's life.

    Take heart that even the riders in the pro peloton have good days and bad. ...

    That would work if the fender was wider and higher than the rack. But, the fender sits lower and is narrower than the rack. Since the fender fits below and inside, so must the fenderstays. Or, put...

    Not necessarily.

    I can't tell from the pictures on Specialized site. Does the bike have a brake bridge in the back? How about a chainstay bridge? It appears to have rack and/or fender eyelets...

    No. You missed the point.

    Clip-on fenders are for wussies and poseurs. Real men use full fenders.

    At the dropout, I use the single eyelet for both the rack and the fenders. The fenderstay...

    One of my commuters has separate eyelets for the rack and the fenders. The other one does not. Both bikes carry up to 70 pounds of groceries on shopping day. Seems to make no difference.

    Two need to be prepped for sale, another needs to be stripped of resuable parts and the rest recycled.

    Yeah, but you're the only guy I know who rides recumbents because they're fast.

    Everyone else I know who rides recumbents, chooses them for other reasons and just pokes along.
