comment My calf catches my derailleur when I pedal
Can you get someone to take a picture of you in your bike showing your calf? I Agree with @Kibbee, the derailleur should only go about 1/4 of an inch or less over the big ring, otherwise the crank would hit it when pedaling...

@Batman: The same can be easily done with MS Excel or an equivalent program.

comment What is the point of pedal straps?
Thanks @ChrisH for pointing out the term. I didn't know how to reference the item. Indeed that was what my friend assembled, starting from complete pedal clips/straps.

comment Carbon fork torque
I would measure both the fork and the hub to check if one of them is too much out of spec.

comment Are road bike seats interchangeable?
While I completely agree with Batman's and Daniel R Hicks' anwsers, I testify that getting a second saddle+seatpost is a great way of sharing a bike that will frequently be used by two people of reasonably similar body geometry. I being a male, used to share a bike with my sister, so I had another seatpost with a wider and more padded saddle wich was placed more towards the front in the post. With the quick release, the bike was readjusted in matter of seconds. (In those days, there wheren't woman's saddles availables in my country)

I really think you will get good answers and suggestions if you re write the question more properly.

comment How to decelerate effectively with a rear brake?
The wording on this question is too bad, it seemingly encourages bad habits in other riders. The core question about rear brake only trechnique is valid, but please, for health reasons, remove the lazy part.

comment Is the same effort required to maintain a set speed using different sized chainring / cog combinations with same ratio
Single speed is more efficient because you don't deal with the friction in the jockey wheels / pulleys.

comment Are there special concerns traveling by plane carrying Air shocks?
@Batman: Indeed, now that you mention it, I once bougt a rear shock that was brought to my country via air cargo, and it came with enough pressure to be used (Sag was almost exactly where I needed it). I think that anecdote answers my own question.
