comment Is it possible to shorten a chain?
Not if you plan to use your front derailleur.

comment What does chain worn indicators 75% mean?
To clarify a bit, replacing your chain before it is completely worn is what will prevent your more expensive components like front chainrings and your cassette from needing to be replaced.

comment What are the practical limitations of a road bike compared to a mountain bike?
It's also probably a function of the amount of money invested in that bike. I wouldn't give a shit hopping curbs on a $70 MTB; worst case scenario, I need to buy another $70 MTB. On a $1,000 road bike, if I taco my wheel I might be out $200 just for that one component. People tend to take better care of their nicer possessions.

comment cars and scooters in a road bike race
Motorcycles aren't exactly mixed in with the cyclists; they don't ride in the peloton. They typically will ride off the front or back of the peloton (there's usually not room on the sides, as the peloton will widen to occupy the entire road). For breakaway groups, they have a bit more freedom to ride parallel to the paceline. You answer seemed easy to misconstrue as motorcyclists being allowed to actually ride in the peloton or in pacelines.

comment Is it realistic to fuel a long ride with NO sugar?
There's not a direct conversion between calories to watts. 800kcal/hr is way beyond plausible — typical rates, even for a hard ride, is somewhere around 300kcal/hr.

FWIW, whole grains basically are sugars. Do you mean no added sugars, or no carbohydrates whatsoever?
