And The Bike?
Ask that question to a room of cyclists and you'll end up more confused than when you started. It all depends on your commute terrain, travel speed, price range, design preferences, maintenance knowledge, and taste (the above Colnago Master definitely fits the bill, if we're dreaming). So take that question to the bike shop. And make sure you keep everything in good shape. There's nothing worse than reaching for your brakes and discovering they do not work.
