comment Can you brake and operate gears at the same time with MTB Dual Control levers?
Ah, thank you for that hint. I wrote MTB because I have MTB but I use it mainly on road and M stands (in my case) for kurbs and once a month a root or two.

Thank you for clarification, now I can see the problem indeed.

Thank you very much, I would be afraid of accidental braking, also because in the videos I saw there was distinct click when shifting, while in braking it has to be smooth operation by definition.

comment Can Lezyne Stainless-12 chain tool handle be used as tire lever?
@DanielRHicks, I don't see how QuickStick is better than regular tire lever (I use Schwalbe ones), I can and I use the same move the guy in the video does, however it depends what kind of tire I have. The reason for the question is simple -- I am just curious. One tool less, the better, after all this is why multi-tools exists. And for the record, I already have 3 pairs of tire levers :-) so it is not about saving the money, just curiosity how far optimization can go. Btw. I already noticed you can drill a hole in that handle, like in Carbon version.

@Blam, what do you need the threads for? I am talking about the handle itself -- just to grab into a hand. However true, it would be smart to put something rigid through the threads for lengthening the handle, and thus gaining the leverage. This is however another story. Here -- handle only :-).

@DanielRHicks, yes, this one. But see the updated post, because the key issue here is the handle itself. I am not afraid of the speed, in my case I am heading home when accident happens, my only concern is making some dent in the rim or damaging the handle.

@Blam, what do you mean "spins"? What is the minimum length of tire lever so one could get enough leverage?

comment Is it possible to measure your sit bones at home?
One can use old-school mouse pad (those with flex). Specialized went pretty vague when selecting the saddle -- the numbers they gave translate into adding around 3 cm to your sit bones width in given position.

comment What is the downside to me purchasing a road bike instead of a hybrid?
@DanielRHicks, it is an example. You have plenty of similar obstacles, like tram or train tracks.

comment How to calculate rigid fork replacement for suspension one?
The tires are no problems, I use semi slicks, and I already found OK tires for me. Back to the question -- so it is safe to buy a bike, and then simply look for this kind of fork? Thank you very much (for the image as well). Fargo has dropbar AFAIR (I will check again).

comment How to calculate rigid fork replacement for suspension one?
@Batman, it is like asking why do you want black bicycle, when white are available. My personal preference is 700C wheels plus 2" tires (I already have 26" bike with 2.35" tires).
