comment What accessories do I have to add to my bike so that I may commute during rainy weather?
IMHO a seat cover only makes sense if the seat can absorb water (leather, cloth). For seats with a plastic surface, you can just wipe off the water, which is much easier than always putting on and taking off a cover. For leather, however, a cover is essential, as otherwise the leather will suffer.

comment What to use to clean your chain (and cogs)?
@Benzo: I did not want to imply you should not clean the chain at all - I just wrote that you should only wipe it off from the outside, and not bathe it in solvent. So there's no contradiction :-).

comment Does gear ratio affect Power?
As to max vs. efficient: Most efficient would be like a car - the speed/cadence which lets you travel the longest distance before you run out of fuel. Like a car, that is not necessarily the speed/cadence which gives you maximum power. And higher cadence generally means lower gears.

comment Does gear ratio affect Power?
As to the power thing: What I meant to say was that it depends on where you measure the power. If you measure power at the wheel, it will always be the same for the same speed and terrain. However, the power that the human has to exert may be different.
