At least once a week I ride my Gucci road bike to work. On my 10 mile commute it only saves a couple of minutes from my usual converted MTB fixie scrap-bin bike but it sure is fun. I feel like the Los Altos Hills tech millionaire driving his Ferrari to work. I can accelerate like TdF rider on EPO and negotiate the few swooping curves with grace and speed. Almost makes it fun to go to work.
