comment Why does reducing bike weight have such an impact on speeds?
Stiffness also factors in. The stiffer the BB area, the less power lost to frame flex. How much, I couldn't say. But the reduction of mass for climbing, increased stiffness and reduced friction for increased power to the wheels combined probably add up to something noticeable.

comment Must a Bicyclist Riding on a Sidewalk Stop at a Stop Sign?
More importantly, you shouldn't be riding on the sidewalks anyway. Established consensus is that it's significantly more dangerous than riding on the road.

comment Why use multiple materials on chainrings?
Excellent answer. I would have intuitively considered the force aspect, but having more teeth engaged in the big vs. small ring is also an important distinction!

comment What kinds of kickstands are good for touring?
+1 for click-stand. Touring right now with one for the second time, and it's one of the most useful things I have for my bike.

comment How to center a quick release rear wheel regularly
Because this locking approach allows you to use the smallest possible lock. Smaller locks weigh less, and more importantly, mean less room to insert a bottle jack, and less leverage from a crowbar.
