comment Need advice on choosing the right folding bike
Although it's not what you've asked for, I'd consider a unicycle if it's only short distances.

comment Bike lock for a Mountain bike with easily removable wheels
I'm very tempted to buy a couple. I'd spray paint over the logo and 'anti-theft system' so they look like normal skewers

comment Bike lock for a Mountain bike with easily removable wheels
"No thief in the world would have this drilled key" I wouldn't rely on that. I'd like to find out more about the Gravity-activated skewers as they sound like the best option to me. I wonder if the moving part could be 'released' by a sudden jerk of the bike?

comment Joe Blow Pump Maintenance
I've got one and sometimes find it harder to pump than other times, but I reattach the value and it works fine. How old is yours? Does it get a lot of use? Does it move easily when not attached to the inner tube? and finally, does it make any strange sounds?

comment How to stop foot clipping front mudguard
I went for option 1. I tried cutting it with a junior hacksaw but it didn't even make a dent! I ended up removing the rods and placing them over a stair then pressing down with my other foot. The stair was slightly curved which fitted well with the shape of the mudguard when I put it back on. I haven't touched the flap yet, I'll see how I get on without alteration first.

comment What are the positions on drop bars called?
Do you mean palms facing up? I suppose that'd relieve downward pressure over a long distance
