    Would a TW200 Good for my commute?

    SO I'm really close to purchasing a TW200. I'm hoping to get some last minute words of advice from y'all before I pull the trigger.
    Its worth stating that it will be my first bike, and I'd mainly be using it for commuting to work during warm weather.
    My commute is 13 miles each way, speed limits are between 35-45 MPH, combination of dirt/gravel/paved along rolling New England countryside.
    Of course, I also have plans of tooling around in the country and on trails with it. I've read a lot about how fun, user friendly, and hearty these things are, so I'm pretty sure it would be a great first bike for me, just looking for some final words of wisdom.

    I'm envious! Commuting on a TW on that combination of roads and at those speeds will be an absolute joy. You will love the bike!
