comment Why does my bike make a noise when I pedal hard?
Do you have a kick-stand? Mine is held on by a single bolt, so gets loose sometimes and can rub on spokes/tyre. It only makes a noise when I'm pedalling hard.

comment Recommendations for inconspicuous helmet-mounted video camera
For inconspicuousness, it looks a lot like a regular front bike light, if that's an acceptable disguise.

comment What are the pros and cons of internal gears?
for the sake of a useful answer for the community, i'll leave the question as is, though where I am it doesn't snow and i ride almost entirely on sealed surfaces - the biggest problem for my gears/chain is a bit of grit and occasional rain so not a hugely compelling reason to switch...

comment Transporting groceries
... unless this thing is an especially light frame or there's little space around the wheels, then it'd probably be fine. if you have any friends/family with a mechanical engineering degree or mechanics who do any custom frame design/modification/etc, ask them for some advice, and how sure they are about it one way or the other (and don't sue them if they're wrong if you've only asked them for some quick/free advice!)
