Generally, hybrids are cheaper and more economical if you are just going to be commuting. Once you get more experience riding, you'll get a feel for whether you want a fast, aggressive road bike or not.

Just curious, is your username derived from Epidemiology Doctorate? I happen to be pursuing a degree in Epidemiology, so of course that's what came to mind.
Thanks for your suggestions, mcjdeftones. And yes, my username is indeed derived from "Epidemiology Doctorate"
