comment How can I tell where the damage is in the hub?
New wheel time, I had issues with my rear hub last year and used it as an excuse to buy a new wheelset. You can replace the hub but then you have to attach your spokes to the new hub, true the wheel up etc all of which as a beginner myself I wouldn't try unless you have alternative bikes you can ride.

comment Equipping a commuter bike
And yes, mudguards or 'fenders' as you yanks call them are vital not just for keeping the muck off you, but more importantly off your drivetrain.

Also, if you don't carry that stuff you will get a puncture.

I would probably carry a spare tube & tyre levers in my kit.. sometimes trying to catch a bus or taxi is hard and you have to lock your bike up etc, might get stolen. Better to replace the innertube which is very easy on a commuter bike.

comment What is a reasonable speed for long distances on a bike?
Don't be put off by these fast sounding averages.. I got much quicker in just a few months of trying to be as fast as someone else on Strava. Most of it's just in your head. I also recently got an HRM so I could get a handle on how much effort I was putting in - it's very easy to think you're trying fairly hard when you're simply not, it's quite fun.

Also, mean average is fairly meaningless, as said traffic lights etc make a huge difference to a mean average.

comment What is a reasonable speed for long distances on a bike?
This matches up with my experience and the people I see on Strava. The fastest people who aren't part of a pro cycling club average around 36Kmh.. the pro people (people who do it as a job) average anything from 40-45Kmh (they make you feel quite slow..) on the same bit of road.
