Sorry - extremely late answer, but yeah the fork is without mounts, but Tubus makes these mounting sets:

My Kona Rove AL, fresh outta oven. Image

Deciding on the new budget tires now, stock ones are 690g a pop.

So far, the choice is between Schwalbe Sammy Slicks and Challenge Gravel Grinder Plus/Race.

My commuter:
2008 Specialized Roubaix
105 10 Speed
Tektro Brakes, SRAM pads
Hed Belgium 28h w/ Powertap rear Wheel
Stans Alpha 340 with Ultegra Hub front wheel
Michelin Pro4 Endurance 25mm (measures 28.74mm on digital calipers)
Some sort of large saddlebag
FSA Crankset 50/34, 11-28 105 Cassette, FSA Stem, FSA Wingpro Alum 40cm handlebars
Asssavers mudgard

My commute is 23 miles each way (46 round trip/74km) and I do it twice a week from March-October. I have showers at my office, and leave suits and dress clothes there in a large locker. Ride is rolling terrain, takes about 1hr15 with 10 stoplights on the way.

Sadly my commuter is my only bike, i had two at one stage but broke the N+1 rule when i purchased the propel and sold my original.

Have put a fair few km's commuting on the propel and have basically ruined cassettes and chains in the poor weather. Looking at picking up a cyclocross bike in the near future and making that the daily! fingers crossed ill have one to post up here shortly

Cannondale SAVE carbon seatpost
Salsa Liplock
Dtswiss xmc 350 carbon rims and sapim superspokes.


Cannondale F500 with modern components

Some upgrades since that picture:

Laced Slate's stock mavic rims to old bontrager (dtwiss 370) rear and Mack front hub for this project.
"milled" a shimano 105 cassette with a BB facing tool to fit it to the rear hub :)

This is what i use to haul bike parts from the post office.


I also got a Trek Stache 5 29+ for more harsh conditions, but sadly dont have a picture of it.

Here are two pictures of my 'commuter', I bought a used cyclocross frame off eBay & a damaged TCR from a car accident. I put the two together with 32mm gatorskins, I really enjoy riding it and it has the same gearing (11sp ultegra mechanical) as my main road bike.

current setup:

from a few years ago:

next changes/upgrades will be the dt-swiss hub and rear cassette and maybe normal black bartape.
2017 BombTrack Needle (Track)
2015 Giant Propel Advanced Pro 1 (Aero Road)

Nothing special to commute.

I have to ride at least 50km each way. So i won't ride something loki a citybike. In summertime i use my normally roadbike. Specialized SL5 or Cannondale SuperSix.
During the winter i use the crosser to commute. Felt fx1, SRAM Force 1x11. Fenders are the SKS Speedrocker. Normally Conti 4Season in 32. If there is some snow, WMB Wribbler. Image
