    Just sold my car.

    So now it's bike or bus!

    23km's one way, I'm about to get a lot fitter.

    Good luck! Sounds like a long commute, but I doubt that you will regret it.

    Congrats! I too recently downsized my car fleet. While I still have one car, I sold one simply because I bike commute everywhere now and didnt drive it!

    Cool! Now you can take the money you got for the car and blow it on a killer bike without feeling bad. Congratulations, Jasever. Good luck.

    That's the way to go!

    Saddlebags apparently works really well for shopping purposes, according to my neighbor.

    Ok so I may have left out that my missus has a car. She's a teacher and bring home a heap of books every night.

    So shopping we still use the car, but during the week she has the car and it's all up to me.

    The only downside is that I'm riding my singlespeed bike during the week, and when it's time to ride my nice lightweight geared bike, I'm not fit enough to granny gear up the hills in!

    Things could be worse

    14 miles each way sounds fun ... I just picked up an old GT ('88 avalanche) for commuter duties (all 5 miles each way of it)... being that it has to be locked up outside i won't be using my good bike... don't think i could commit to 30 miles a day with how the wet season is here

    have fun and ride safe

    Thanks, one less car on the road is more space for mine.
    If I disagree with you, it's because you are wrong.

    23km one way? That mean 46km per day.
    When it's time to go, is time to go.

    Yep thats right kiatkiat. Got the day off today but yesterday was a perfect ride home. No head wind! (Not really fun on an overgeared singlespeed)

    You could run a flip-flop hub with a larger cog on the other side? Of maybe a "dingle-speed" set-up?
