Re: The time has come! Share your knowledge!
A ChinaGirl kit might not be the best choice for a commuter. Aside from the breaking/wearing in period, they have an unfortunate habit of failing when you are far from home or late for work. Murphy's law sort of deal.
I don't mean to dissuade you in any way but for reliable transportation, I advise friends to get a better setup. The ChinaGirls are great and great fun. But not an ideal choice for commuting.
I forget who first suggested this but works great. Carry a plastic bag with you so you can remove the drive chain and ride as a regular bike should some thing fail.
