comment How do treads affect traction?
Why do MTBs have treaded tyres then: is it for squirming through churning mud, more like a tractor than a road vehicle?

comment Should the laws be amended to allow cyclists to run red lights?
@armb Yes I figure I have the right to treat it as a "broken" stop light.

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)
