Anyone use their crosser as a regular commuter bike.

Does anyone have any experience using Planet Bike fenders on a gravel road commute? I want coverage for cross tires so I don't have that signature "cross look" when I get to work in muddy conditions. Thanks!
I use my Poprad. It even has eyelets for a rack that I can put on and off quickly. The only problem is that it gets used and abused more, so this has been relgated to the B bike.
I built my Bianch Axis specifically for commuting first, road training second, and CX racing 3rd. The only difference is that I use bigger touring tires for commuting. There is some argument out there that fatter tires provide a better ride with comparable rolling resistance and efficiency. I'm rollin' on 38C Schwalbe Marathon Cross all seasons. Having checked the internet it was really easy to find a few articles written in magazines where the Axis, specifically, was used. Really for commuting disc brakes are ideal, and I often wonder what geometry differences there are between a Trek Portland and X0.
Count me in also (at least when my cross bike will be all built up). I currently commute on my road bike, but looking forward to the day I will on my Italian Stallion. I love to bike commute... nothing beats my "race-like" commutes back home in the evening!
yeah... 'cross bikes do make really great commuters, but if you putting in serious commuting miles in all conditions, etc. expect to do a lot of maintenance and replace things often -- not the best situation to be in if you race the same bike on the weekends...
