It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Safe cycling lights red but the man is green
Welcome to Bicycles SE. Please use proper sentence structure when composing your posts. And also note that we have a global audience. Without any reference to what country you're talking about, the law you cite is meaningless. Furthermore, in many locations it actually is legal for a cyclist to treat a stop light as a stop sign and treat a stop sign as a yield sign. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idaho_stop

comment How do I go about choosing a bike for commuting?
As @Tom mentions, you're really asking a lot of different questions here. My suggestion would be to start at your local bike shop. You'll pick up a lot more in face-to-face interactions than you will on any online forum. And poke around the site some. We have a lot of questions about geometry, commuter bikes, and cyclocross. I think you'll find that many of your questions have already been answered.

comment How do I choose a light GPS device supporting Strava?
The question is still too broad and primarily opinion-based. Things like "what features should I look for" are going to be highly dependent on individual preferences. As far as selecting the "lightest/best" device, I recommend checking the device specs to see which one is the lightest and reading online reviews to determine which is the best. Ultimately, what is best is also going to be primarily opinion-based.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. I think if you edit your question to focus on the issue of how much bike technologies change over time, you'll get better responses. You'll also notice a lot of similar questions that may help you out on the right side of this page. There was even a very similar question asked recently (possibly even a duplicate), but I can't find it at the moment.
