comment How much does rider weight increase tire pressure?
I think it has to be accurate. I checked it myself (on a tire with a shrader valve) and got the same result -- about 1 psi increase from 45.

Good question. I'm looking for an s3 mount for a road bike.

comment What road bike tire pressure is best for speed?
On a smooth track, rolling resistance is least with maximum pressure. That's why trains use steel wheels. A track is smooth, but roads have regular bumps half the diameter of the tire. If a tire has no "give", then the bike bounces instead of the tire deforming, which costs energy. So there is a tradeoff.

comment What pressure should I run my Road Bike tyres at?
Michelin says this is for comfort and handling as well as speed. If I am only concerned about speed, is higher pressure always better?

comment Taking a bike on a sailing boat
Most, but there can be a few (like the ones that hold the reflectors on) that may not be. It's probably not enough to carry a collection of stainless nuts and bolts, but there is probably already a collection of stainless nuts and bolts on the boat.

comment Safest way to slow down a bike quickly if both sets of brakes fail
Actually, a chain link fence can cause problems if it catches your handle bar just right, but not as bad as barbed wire.
