I'm in a similar boat with swept bars, although a slightly shorter commute at 26 miles RT.

I am also lucky to enjoy a scenic commute, and am in no rush to get to work (when I leave on time).

Single speed seems pretty bomb-proof to me. Otherwise I'd be going with some kind of swept bar and thumb shifters.

I don't think it will index to your left shifters, if you're trying to do that. But I bet it'd work running friction, if the rear of that cage can clear the 42t cog when you're in high gear.

It depends on the bike of course, but I've been riding a couple of modern steel frames with 700x42mm slicks over the last year or so, and it's been the combo of comfort and speed that I enjoy.

I'm also a Rivendell rider these days, a recent Atlantis model. It feels like the summer I had as a teenager driving my grandpa's Cadillac. For my riding, it's just right.

Ha indeed! I have B17s on my other two main rides and this felt like total punishment. The previous iteration had drops and I will be returning to that, with slightly wider (44cm) Nitto Noodle bars.
