Where my commuters at!?
So after a year of working at home I left the place I was working at and joined a new company.
Only thing is that I am no longer working from home and I'm not commuting to work.
Been crappy days this week with the rain, but not horrible. Which led me to see how many others here are commuting to work.
Need tips on:
Rain gear (currently looking at frogtogg (sp?).. )
Tires that are better for commuting & rain
...anything else that will help make my commute better/more enjoyable/safe.

I've ridden through my share of thunderstorms and on light rainy days that make the roads extra slick. I'm running Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires (front and rear). Haven't experienced any sliding or unstable behavior on rainy days. I've used these tires on the track too. Can't say enough good things about them.
I have the Ogio No-drag Mach 3 backpack. I don't believe they advertise it as a rainproof backpack, but because of the hard shell and the way it is made, it always keeps me dry when I have it on. No water has gotten in.
