I have a pretty long commute. About 23 miles each way with a couple of good hill climbs thrown in for good measure. I've done this on my MTB and it is doable but just not fun on that beast of a bike. I'm looking for something lighter and faster . I need gears (and maybe even a triple up front because I'm a panzy when it comes to long endless hill climbs). I want to start riding in 1 to 3 times a week just to get in better shape, just not quite sure which way to go with a commuter bike. I used to be a roadie so leaning towards a more traditional road bike but not a fan of being that hunched over with a backpack for the ride in. Just starting to look into this more seriously and I'm looking for any suggestions!
