  • 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 select a cyclocross bike at around £800
Product recommendation questions are generally a poor fit for a Q&A site since the answers quickly become out of date.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.

comment Why do cyclists prefer messenger bags over backpacks?
Welcome to Bicycles Stack Exchange! Your original answer seems to be targeted at motorcycle riders, not bicyclists. I have edited the answer to clarify. If I have significantly modified your intent, you can re-edit the answer, but please keep things targeted to Bicycling. For an intro to how this and other Stack Exchange Q & A sites work, please Take the Tour.
