  • By day a Microsoft Platform Web Developer.
  • By night 1/2 the year, a H.S Basketball Coach.

I am a mixed mode commuter - sometimes I ride, sometimes I drive, and sometimes there is a bus or train ride mixed in there.

My rides:

  • 2008 Specialized Roubaix Comp (pretty much stock)
  • 2004 Novara Randonee - racks, fenders, lights and an upgrade to 105 on the rear after a crash.

Started commuting as an adult on a 1993 MtnTek Vertical - rack, fenders, slicks - Sold in 2013.

comment How to deal with lock that keeps jamming?
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment Novatec D041SB and D142SBT Hub Quality
I think it is unlikely that this will be reopened for several reasons. 1) Quality is frequently a subjective judgement, and often relies on other factors like price (which changes over time) and what you are comparing it too. 2) Usefulness of this question decreases over time as dealers move to newer stock and this item becomes unavailable for purchase new.

comment 1st road bike; wary of no-name parts?
Product recommendation questions are generally a poor fit for a Q&A site since the answers quickly become out of date. There are a number of previous posts that will help you know what to look for when buying a new/first road bike, commuter bike and mountain bike.
