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.

Product recommendation questions are generally a poor fit for a Q&A site since the answers quickly become out of date.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 GMC Denali - quality?
Dissenter - There are a number of issues with this post. You really have at least two questions: 1) Should I buy a specific bike? These are usually closed for being product rec questions. 2) How do I modify the fit of a frame that may be just a bit too small? Sometimes these are left open, but are difficult to answer since fit is an immensely personal thing.

This is really a comment, not an answer. It would be better if you explained what you did to fix it (changed alignment, bought shorter bolts, etc.) While this type of answer is welcomed and expected on a traditional forum, it's not in line with our goals as a Q/A site. Please see the Tour for an overview of how this and other Stack Exchange sites work.

Although this may theoretically answer the question, you should probably expand this answer to include "why" the seat saved you.

For an intro to how this and other Stack Exchange Q & A sites work, please Take the Tour. While accepted on a traditional forum, this kind of extended back and forth and new questions in comments is not in line with the general flow of a Q&A site.
