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.

Also: (road): ramps and pins on cogs to improve shifting performance and increase the maximum jump, leading to the compact double (making a double instead of triple a reasonable non-racer option). An increase up to 11 gears in a cassette. Tapered steerer tubes (headset wider on bottom than top)

Welcome to Bicycles Stack Exchange! Could you please add a close-up picture of the brakes and of the rim sticker skid marks? It's difficult to see any detail in this picture.

comment Properties with Belt-driven Chains?
Very minor point: sometimes it's the dropout that's split. Either way, I think they avoid reducing rigidity by, basically, adding more material in that area.
