comment What is the “preload” setting on the front fork suspension?
Typically so, but just to be sure I would consult the manual for your fork to see if it adheres to the convention.

comment Is my interval training routine effective for mountain bike training?
Yes, as long as, again, you don't mix it in with weight training. The idea is that if you want a session of higher intensity training, such as threshold, intervals, or sprints, to be effective, you should train hard. You should feel like you should be carried off the bike at the end of the session. Then rest at least two days before attempting another hard session.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of riding a smaller Mountain Bike frame?
@Jahaziel The internal forces in the frame will be smaller, but the external forces exerted by the necessarily longer stem and seatpost will more than make up for it, because proportionally more leverage will be added externally than removed internally.

comment What kind of bicycles do they ride in the Tour de France?
@Robert Korytnik: You're right, I was projecting from maybe 2007, when I remember some sprinters still used alu frames for their better stiffness. Edited.
