Here's my commuter, when i get the chance ie; when i'm not wearing a suit or carrying loads of stuff, or it's chucking it down!!!

Reynolds 708 tubing, full Shimano 105 groupset with Mavic rims. Road riding is not really my thing, but it flies along quite nicely.

my new wet weather bike...

finally got this after spotting it for a good price on STW back in about November or something. Switched the (nasty)saddle for the SDG, and changed bars/stem from the short/high setup to this (still feels a bit high up front after communting on a proper roadbike for a while) Stem here courtesy of Hilts (cheers dude!)

I think the wheels may well get switched too, for something lighter/faster/skinnier, but at least it feels like I'm getting a good workout for now.

Contemplating the whole fixed thing, but there's some interesting hills on my route....
