Thanks for the great advice
Always a good idea to try in advance!

The Inc3 has a very upright geometry but my back prefers that

i also have put 1500km on an inc 2 which had the 8 speed alfine replaced with the 11 under warranty and i have had hydraulic discs fitted also.
i think it is a great bike for commuting. No grease, low maintenance and clean to put in the car. I have also fitted 28mm 4 seasons and m530 pedals with mt34 shoes
it is a reasonably fast bike but not road bike fast. My commute is 20km each way and includes some roads but mainly paths for safety. there are some nice long stretches though that let me get into good rhythm and i can get up to 30 plus averages and low 40s on the sprint sectiuons.
I am thinking about converting to drop bars with the versa 11 shifters and avid bb7 mechanical discs as i think the drops give me more riding position options depending on what im doing. Does anyone have any experience with modifying the incs or with any of the gear im proposing to use? i think i can do it for about 4-500 so all up my bike will have cost me $2k once setup.
any advice would be good
