I wouldn't ride a bike with shocks in the fork and seatpost for the winter. I'd look for something that has as few possibilities for mechanical failure as possible. Single speeds are pretty classic way to go for that reason. I run a geared bike because I have a heck of a short climb (yeah they have a few hills in IA, on the way to work. Very hard to beat a vintage mtb as a commuter given the price and given that they have lots of room for fat tires and fenders.
