comment Reducing saddle bounce when increasing cadence
A similar idea is riding on rollers. If you bounce too much you fall off :-)

I've had one from the 'odd stuff' - loose pulley wheel.

comment While pedaling standing up, bike crank gives in as if shifting, what is causing this?
Even a loosely clamped back wheel, although that's unlikely back from the bike shop.

I was another elbow-rester before I worked out it was causing me problems, I wonder how common it is?

comment What am I supposed to do when my chain falls off?
I find the multi-tool chain breakers a little fiddly for joining but fine for breaking. They work well in combination with something like an SRAM Powerlink.

If you're not too heavy you could reduce tire pressure too.

comment Should I get a reflective jacket/coat, or more lighting and reflective strips for the bike?
+1 for ankle straps. The up and down motion screams bicycle :-)

comment When or how often should I replace my bike helmet?
I remember reading that the Fraunhofer Institute were developing helmets that released bad smells when damaged. I don't know if it ever went anywhere.

comment Is there something particularly wrong with exclusively riding a mountain bike in a city setting?
Entertaining answer. I'd recommend trying out a range of tire pressures. Having lost 30kg cycling in the last 3 years I've found dropping pressure has been beneficial as my ride was getting a little 'bouncy'.

comment How much of a difference do Toe Pedal Clips make in comparison to Platform Pedals?
I remember falling over with toe clips trying to pull my foot out when I had panniers on. Embarrassing.
