I'm a self-teaching geek. teaching because that process is far from over. I don't know a ton, but what I know, I'll share, and I won't answer a question if I'm not confident I'm correct.

comment Clip-on to temporarily convert Look pedal to stand-on style?
As others have noted, the product actually looks like a good option, but the answer, as written, doesn't show that. Please edit your answer to show a bit more detail and encourage others to actually read it.:)

comment Why are 10 speed chains so expensive?
@Mac: Hypothesis does not, in fact, make a better factual answer than an assumption, since a hypothesis is only an assumption based on at best incomplete data used to BS a grant committee into funding the researcher's lifestyle while he does the research. :) It's the result of the research which would make a better factual answer.

comment Puncture resistant tires
They are heavy, and while they work well in the short term, they dry out and get brittle over time. Eventually, after around six months, they will get sharp enough to cause you flats.

comment What is the name of the part, often seen on BMX bicycles, that allows an additional rider on the back the bike?
@Erik, I'm not going to argue with you. If you know bikes, you know this is unsafe. If you don't, then you can say whatever you like. I will not respond to you further.
