So sad

Another biker killed by a vehicle on a bike path. Not a bike lane mind you. But a bike path. You know, where cars aren't supposed to be.

Hey, it's been a while since I've posted and kept up with bike blogs, but I may be back soon.

I'm trying to decide on a new bike for riding in the city, commuting to work, and getting to farmer's markets. I figure regular rides will be short- 3-5 miles, but there will be a random 10+ miler once in a while. Any ideas?

I'm looking at some touring bikes and I'm really new to this commuter bike idea. My old cheap mountain bike has an okay frame, but I'd rather not ride it for a while. I'm looking at an old Lemond Zurich frame, but I'm not too sure what the best option is for a commuter bike. What do you suggest- a mountain bike frame or a touring/road bike frame?

Also, is there really any point to a fixie? Thanks.
