comment I wish to get fit, therefore should I have a heavy bike?
I know when I switch from my mountain bike with studdy tires to my road bike with slicks I get way more than 2-3% increase in speed.

comment What tips do you have for making temporary “get me home” repairs?
+1 for blocking the derailer in place with the limit screw. I never thought about that before. Is the screw usually long enough to block it in a reasonably low gear?
