comment Differential foot stress?
If they are anything like the Keen sandals I have extremely flexible soles, which isn't ideal for riding. Try something with harder soles. That being said, I do use my Keens for short rides in the summer, especially when it's raining as they dry off so quickly.

comment Is Ultegra 9 speed compatible with Sora 9 speed?
Is Sora really shifting to 10 speed? Does that mean Shimano will no longer have any 9 speed road groupsets? Unless of course they move Claris to 9 speed in which case they will have no 8 speed groupset. I did a little bit of Googling, and couldn't find anything about Sora going to 10 speed.

comment When did Ultegra shift from 9 to 10 speed rear cassettes?
I thought derailleurs weren't specific to the number of cogs. If it has 105 shifters, you're probably asking when 105 shifters were 9 speed.

comment Should I switch to a 13-23T or 12-25T cassette?
I did a similar swap to an 8 speed 12-25 from an 11-32 and I was quite happy with the results. Having the gear closer together made it much more likely that I could find a gear with comfortable cadence. I also have a triple 52-42-30 crankset which helps on the hills.

comment Road bike assembly - required tools
Check for bike co-ops in your area that would allow you to use their tools. There's a bike co-op in my area that is well stocked. There's a $5/hour fee for using the tools or you can volunteer in the shop and have the fee waived. They have basically every tool you would need to assemble a bike.

comment Front suspension or full suspension mountain bike
I checked the first link and it has a £1500 ($2200 US) price tag. That's far from affordable for most people. After checking the other links, that's the cheapest on you linked to. At this price level, full suspension is a good thing to consider, but at $1000 or below, the quality of full suspension isn't very good, and you'd be better off with just front suspension.

comment Can a sora 9 speed Rear Derailleur short cage support a 12-36 cassette single chain ring 56T?
The only question is whether a long cage would fit with a 20 inch wheel. It might hang really close to the ground in certain gears.

comment Is a 29.5 km/h average speed decent for a 90 km ride (on road) with an elevation of 1200 m?
@RossMillikan, I don't know why Strava can't auto-filter (pardon the pun) these results. If you're all of a sudden riding twice as fast as you usually do, then something is wrong with the reading. It's either left on in the car, or something else is wrong with the readings.

Also remember that a fair number of people on Strava will be setting those times while riding in a group.
