Just wanted to mention, if you wanted to buy a more expensive winter-commuting bike, a lot of people buy a bike with an internal hub (like I have a Shimano Alfine). I think they do 11 speed now? They're slightly less efficient than a derailler, but it keeps all the shifting inside the hub protected from the elements. So of them come with a belt drive (rather than a chain) as well. They're not cheap, but they last a long time even in winter riding here.
