I have a 10k commute in city traffic, couple of bottlenecks where traffic gets a bit slow (can't lane filter yet on my licence, have to wait until October), two school zones where the speed is 40km/h, a couple of back streets where the speed limit is 40-50km/h and about 6k of main roads where the speed is 60km/h, not that much shifting, I keep the revs under 6k and typically just get up to 4th (60km/h), sometimes 5th at around 60km/h when traffic is clear or when going downhill. Shifting is really easy on this bike and it handles really nicely as well with plenty of power when you need it.
Only downside is that I think I'm developing permanent smile lines
