I am a Regional Vice President of an Employee Benefits Company, so I have to fly out somewhere about 3 times a month but the rest of the time, I work out of my house or see clients here in South Florida. About 3 months ago I decided not to renew the lease on my car. I began commuting by using my road bike as my main mode of transportation. Well it worked and I don’t miss the car, so I decided with all the money I saved ($1500 in the first three months alone) to get a more commuter friendly bike, the Globe Live 2. It is much more comfy and now I want to be biking all day long. And actually I can now, that I attached a waterproof iPhone kit to my bike to go along with the fenders, full chain guard and the Shimano Nexus 8 speed internal hub. And oh yes that front rack will hold 50 lbs. Next I will attach a rear rack for my canvas grocery bag panniers and I will be set. One more thing, when I ride I always have an old film camera around my neck to record the fact that I actually can now see the world around me. ciao.
