I bought my Gary Fisher Rig because I wanted a different mountain bike from my Fuel, which is my racing bike. Also, its main purpose was to be a commuter. It is a little overboard for a commuter, but is seems all my bikes area a little overboard, so why break the trend. I also would love to be able to commute to work and other things year around if possible. I hate riding bikes indoors. Todays ride to work was a bit of a test. When I left to go to the gym at 5:45 this morning, the temperature was 8 degrees, and the wind chill was -2. I dressed in a lot of layers, and was fine. More bike time equals less car time equals great for everyone, especially me. Plus, GTRI is going to participate in the $20 a month for commuting to work starting January!
