comment How to clean rubber and plastic parts with sticky, thick teflon-based lube stains?
@DanielRHicks The teflon lube I've seen used an alcohol-based 'vehicle'. Although alcohol is a solvent, perhaps it doesn't dissolve teflon (perhaps it's a teflon suspension, not a teflon solution), and the alcohol's purpose as a 'vehicle' is simply to evaporate easily. Nevertheless, alcohol is something else that you could try (which might not dissolve rubber or plastic).

comment Must a Bicyclist Riding on a Sidewalk Stop at a Stop Sign?
Look both ways, twice, before you enter the intersection (and if you see a policeman, then come to a complete stop)

comment What will be the time to close a gap to catch a breakaway?
It's ((x<sub>1</sub> - x<sub>2</sub>) / (v<sub>2</sub> - v<sub>1</sub>)) if v<sub>2</sub> and v<sub>1</sub> are on the same path, except when (v2 = v1)

comment For road riding, are mountain bikes safer than road bikes?
@Jahaziel That problem might never have happened on a MTB, which is more likely than a road bike to have disk brakes (not rim brakes).

comment Will this Retrospec Siddhartha bike suit my needs?
You might want to look for a "hybrid" bike, not "MTB". For example, road tires (fat or otherwise) but not off-road tires; and, no suspension (which, is said to be heavy, and to absorb some of your cycling power by bobbing up and down).

comment Will this Retrospec Siddhartha bike suit my needs?
The hybrid that I'm pleased with (ref and ref) cost $700, on discount because it was last year's model, without accessories, and without upgraded tires. OTOH it wasn't the cheapest available, e.g. it has hydraulic disk brakes). It was also, IMO, relatively cheap: only because I could use it year-round, instead of a car or public transport.
