I have been commuting on a Lime Lite for 4 months now. I changed several things to make the bike suitable. First, I added a Performance rear rack, SKS fenders, and Planet Bike front and rear lights. I switched the inner tubes for Thorn Resistant ones. This is very important. You wouldn't want to get a flat tire riding to work on this bike, because it is time consuming to take the rear wheel off. Last, I changed the rear sprocket from a 20 tooth to a 15 tooth. This gave me the perfect gearing. I love the automatic shifting. I always forgot to shift down when I stopped, but this bike never forgets to shift. The way this bike is equipped, I could ride it forever.
