  • 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 do treads affect traction?
Welcome to Bicycles! Your answer was flagged a couple of times for low quality. Formatting, spelling and grammar can make what you write much easier for others to read. I'll make an attempt at editing you answer; check it out and make sure I have retained your meaning.

comment Is it appropriate to build bikepaths in local roads instead of Minor or Major Arteries?
I'm with Daniel... Some people love bike lanes, others would rather see "complete streets". I'm not familiar with the law or politics in Mexico. That said, a starting point would be to look at the League of American Bicyclists Bike Friendly Community Assessment for evaluation ideas.
