Bike for metro suburb commuting?
I live 16 miles from work and enjoy biking to and fro, mostly surface streets and sidewalks; it's a pretty decent workout. The bike I have, however, is over 15 years old and is a heavy mountain bike (Diamondback). I'm in the market for a new bike but there are so many different kinds now! Any suggestions for a bike that can handle road commuting and fine gravel path? I'm not looking to conquer insanely rocky/mountainous terrain.

Yes, a new bike is so refreshing.
Take a look at either Hybrids or Comfort Road bikes at your local bike shop. If you want a fast dual purpose bike ask to see the selection of Cross bikes but beware of sticker shock with a good cross bike.

just get some 1.5" wide slicks and try that
weight really isn;t that important
