Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

comment Is it better to have a slightly big or slightly small bike?
but the standover cannot be adjusted, whereas the stems, seatpost, etc can -- therefore I say it's a bit better to have a slightly too small bike than one that is too large.

comment Kickstands and mountain bikes
@neil ground clearance is a bigger deal on mountain bikes because you're traversing rocks, stumps, uneven trails, etc. That's the main reason I would not want one. Plus, just another thing to add weight, get in the way, and mountain bikes don't need to be treated so gently with a kickstand, as the other answer noted.

comment Safest way to slow down a bike quickly if both sets of brakes fail
if you have tried them, can you comment on the efficacy of each method in your experience

comment Looking for a first race worthy road bike - What should I look for?
this is a bit too broad, and too much of a shopping recommendation, to be valid. Can you scope this down to something a bit more specific? bicycles.stackexchange.com/faq#dontask and blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/11/qa-is-hard-lets-go-shopping

comment Switch front and rear tire for distributing wear
@neil fyi the system removes any comments containing the dupe url once it is edited into the body of the post at the time of closure. Otherwise we'd have a ton of duplicate links in the comments.
