I've only seen Orbeas on training and group rides but if it works for you that's all that counts.
I see just as many commuters on mountain/hybrids as road bikes. When I had a job to commute to I rode my '99 Raleigh R600 road bike.

If it works, use it! The bike will certainly impress your coworkers.

hmmm are you saying it's a bad call to use for the everyday commute? The pratical use is for the eveyday commute but the ultimate reason is I want to start doing long range riding...

I commute on my Steelman SR (though I once rode my Orbea Pista track bike to the coffee shop).

As I was leaving one of our grocery co-ops the other evening, a lycra-clad cyclist was clip-clopping in. I saw his Orbea Pista parked at the rack. Looked almost new.

Orbea is one of the few brands that tempts me to buy a spiffy new bike, but if I had a sweet bike like that I wouldn't beat it up commuting. But if that's what you've got, and that's what you want to use, go for it.

Have only seen an Oreba on group rides....get a cross or a MBT......something you can put a rack on. Most of the commuters that I see riding road bikes in Philly, generally are not using their best bikes
