comment Why use multiple materials on chainrings?
@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.

comment Fixing rear-wheel puncture on belt-drive bike
Indeed a flat can be fixed without taking the wheel off the bike. On a bike with chain, I prefer the non drive side. On front wheels, the non-disc side.

comment How to ride to work without sweating?
@Davor: No, it's not science, just practical knowledge. What you eat, particularly spice, ends up in your transpiration and contributes to body odor. In this sense even a person that just took a shower and sweats releases a smell. Drinking a lot of water just dilutes these things, (whatever they are) and makes body odor less prominent, even before bacteria reproduction.
