My wife and I are moving from Phoenix to Austin and we're going to rid ourselves of one car in the process. She works from home, and I plan on getting around on a bike. I used to commute about 6 miles to and from school on a Raleigh M-50 with continental slicks before it got stolen. My commute in Austin will be between 6 and 16 miles one-way so I'll probably make use of the bike-friendly bus transit as well. I'll be working at UT so I ride free.
I joined here to research commuting bicycles and I've found some good info so far. Right now I'm considering the Giant Trans Send EX, the Novara Transfer and the Novara Fusion. I'm also considering picking up something on Craigslist when I get to Austin if I can find a frame that fits my short stature.
