I've been commuting by bike since 2009. I enjoy road cycling and occasional mountain biking.

comment Is it better to get an entry-level carbon bike or a similarly priced aluminum bike?
Much of this answer compares entry level bikes with expensive bikes--I'm not sure this really answers whether it's better to get a similarly priced aluminum or carbon bike.

comment Replacing a road bike frame
Welcome to Bicycles.SE. Can you be a little more specific about what you're asking? Is there something wrong with your current frame?

comment How do I prevent my pants from getting caught into the bike gears
Manufactured leg straps may include elastic, but I'm guessing the home-made velcro doesn't stretch. I have velcro leg straps, and the elastic helps it stay secure and comfortable.

From your edit, it sounds like you're asking whether a 5 mile commute is reasonable. It definitely is.

comment What is considered a good “safe biking distance” to bike to work?
Are you concerned about a specific maximum travel time or something else? (It sounds like it's not about safety as I initially read the title to imply.) If you can make your situation a little more specific, then it would be a lot easier to answer.
