bikeless (temporarily) in Vancouver BC

Hey,

I'm in Vancouver BC and have been biking to work for about four years now -- but I've been biking since kindergarten.

Found this site throught a colleage when asking for advice on a new commuter bike, having recently had a run-in with a car (his fault, not mine!). I was riding an '03 Devinci Monaco. The frame got a kink in the downtube from the impact, so now I'm waiting on a check from the car insurance company.

I put a deposit down on an '06 Devinci Sydney on the weekend, but now that I've looked around a bit and seen people talking about steel vs. aluminum, I'm having second thoughts! Still, the Monaco was great for me and was a much nicer ride than the half-decent steel bike I had for several years before that.

James
