comment Where should the cleat be on the shoe?
I agree it's a duplicate. I looked for a dup, but the search didn't find it. I'll search harder next time.

You're right, Daniel. I really meant the pads rub on the disk -- you cannot adjust the caliper position far enough to avoid this.

comment Adjusting disk brake pad positions
One is a Specialized Rockhopper with Avid brakes. I don't remember the other, but it is another brand. I don't know the difference between linear pull or cantilever brakes, but there is a cable the runs down to the calipers -- it's not hydraulic.

In a rough road, there is a point in the tire pressure where the wheels start bouncing. This would mess up the nice linear resistance at least at that point. I'm not sure what happens beyond there.

comment Which puncture-resistant tires?
A couple more options are a kevlar or thick liner than you and inside a tire (Tuffy is one brand), and a tube that already has hole sealing gel inside it. Slime makes some.

I meant for a road bike tire of fixed width, say, 23mm, is the maximum pressure the fastest on an ordinary street?

Those links go to the same file. Rolling resistance in that article is linear with respect to speed because they test it on a smooth surface (wheel). I doubt if it is linear with a load on a road surface.
