comment Why is wearing a skin suit in the Tour de France risky?
Also storage can be for extra gear, like a jacket if it rains, arm warmers if cold...

Do not underestimate the downside of no storage, being without food can be catastrophic in multi-hour races, and if team mates are not able to help out (you get into a break, or team mates crash), you run out of options, and energy.

comment Annoying clicking sound from the bottom bracket
@Mozammel, removing the BB is actually pretty easy on the FSA BB30, you just need a 10mm allen key, and turn against the cup on the non-drive crank. The non-drive crank will just pop right off, then you can remove the drive side. Clean out the shaft, and the BB internals, and re-grease and put back together. All you need is the 10mm allen key and some grease.

comment Should I be wearing sunblock?
@geoffc - A cycling cap tends to stop the sweat from running into the eyes as a bonus (really bad when mixed with suncream), but they get wet from sweat... and it does add to the cooling effect - almost just as cool as not wearing one. I wear one in summer for the sun protection, and stopping the sweat in the eyes, and in winter to stop the cold and sweat in the eyes

comment How do I align a wheel?
Some more info on the technique would be great, like which spokes to lengthen or shorten to move the wheel back to true. Also, do you need the truing stand, or can you make do without?

Bandages are a great idea, that I had not thought of, some basic first aid.

comment How to Prevent Cramping
@neilfein, I have heard that stretching before exercise is actually not good for muscles, however, do you stretch after riding, and does this help with cramps, as I do find stretching after riding helps a bit, but not much on it's own.
