comment It it impolite to “informally” join or draft a group of cyclists?
The material of the bikes does not add any value to this questions. It could be reworded a bit like "a group of cyclist riding in formation", and just "My presence was mostly unacknowledged". Without that the question would read a bit less "judgemental", which would improve the tone.

Would be great if you add a link to that quote :)

comment Why aren't hub/drum/roller brakes suitable for touring?
The drawback you mention on the third paragraph of caliper brakes is that dirt can get more easily in the surface and prevent braking, while dirt track bikes use disk brakes because the disk (the braking surface) is father away from all the dirt. Going over the handlebars has more to do with braking power, and any good braking system will be powerful enough to cause that.

comment Are bicycle registration websites any use for recovering stolen bikes?
@johannes, stolen bikes end up there yes, but that service is not tailored to the report. What I was wondering is another service where, before purchasing an used bike in ebay or craiglist, you could run some quick searches to be sure.

comment What is the best method to teach a young child to ride?
Learning how to balance is not the final trick, is the main thing. Once the sense of balance is acquired the rest adds up to that. That is the real benefit of the balance bikes, or plainly using a normal bike and propelling with the feet on the floor, it focus the learning on the main issue (and the usual main source of falls and pain).
