For the commuter time is money. Aero improvements mean cost savings. Health is also an important factor. One could look at interval training and speed play as part of a commute. If you are training for a particular event then the organizing body rules need to be observed. Drag reduction, exposure to cold, crosswinds, and mounting issues all need to be addressed. Side panels and tail boxes may be hinged to allow easy mounting and dismounting. One of the main reasons for quick connect pedals was to avoid falling over at a stop. I recommend using mirrors in traffic so I am mounting dual racing style mirrors to the front fairing. I am also testing some frames with lower top tubes.
