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
Trek Ion 700 Front Light, Flare R rear light
Toupe Saddle
Bottle in cage is XLab, with extra spares inside

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
