By the way, my current personal descent speed records are almost the same for MTB on dirt and for Road Bike on Pavement. ;)

Althoug common speeds are higher on road bikes, mountain bikes plus mtb gear wheights significanlty more, thus an mtb has more kinetic energy than a road one, both moving a the same speed.

comment Convert a Cannondale SM1000 (about 1991 model) to disk brakes
@Criggie: Sorry, I didn't read that this answer was about front brake only. I made my comment too short and didn't specify that my worries about the frame are related to the rear triangle. I Inicially thought your answer was generally against the upgrade and my comment was meant in that same direction.

Also, a frame or fork not designed for disk brakes may not have a structure that can withstand the forces that a disk brake generates.

@SimonMᶜKenzie: I meant that the rider has identified his/her shifting technique faults and has corrected them.

comment Is rubber cement in stationery stores the same as in tire patch kits?
When I was a kid, and my rides around the block, I once patched a tube with rubber cement and a piece cut out of another tube. It lasted for about 3 days. Also tried with rubber cement + tire patch. Lasted even less. Meanwhile, a well applied tire patch with vulcanizing compound will outlast the tube and the tire!

comment How much of a bruising can a MTB take?
+1. I would add that a good technique is not only smoother on the bike, but on rider's body as well. No point enduring unnecesary pain (or ptential injury) if the same trail can be ridden easier while keeping the fun.

@ChrisinAK: WOuld you say that installing a MTB cassette (paired with a long cage deraileur) on a road hub is safe compatibility-wise?
