When I'm not bicycling, I'm a Linux SysAdmin. I'm on the board of my local bicycle advocacy group.

Bikes are my primary transportation. A 2009 Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as a commuter and a 2012 Trek Ion CX. I also take the bus, but do not own a car.

comment What kind of bike do I have
Please add some details. At the very least, some pictures. I recommend: picture of the whole bike from the drivetrain side, picture of the front of the head tube, picture of the rear derailer, and a picture of any other words or logos anywhere on the bike.

comment Why don't road bikes have disc brakes?
It's probably time to update this answer. There's been an increase in less race-focused high-end road bikes ("endurance") and road-ish bikes (cyclocross, "gravel grinder", etc) with some of those getting disc brakes.
