I recently bought a new commuter and assuming that I ride it at least 3x a week just commuting to work and nothing else, it will pay for itself in less gas purchased in a year or so. However I use it for just a ride when the weather is crappy as well...so I have that going for me.

I had a steel frame bike that I loved, but in reality, did not truly fit me. I moved the 105\Ultegra parts from the steel frame, pulled the Tiagra off, sold them on BF and I have a really lovely commuter.
