comment Is it better to breathe through your nose or mouth when cycling?
I wear a wool balaclava when cycling in the cold, as I don't tend to get enough air when breathing through my nose and pushing hard. The wool acts as a heat exchange increasing the temperature of the air going into my lungs. They do tend to get quite soggy / gross, so I have 5 - one for each work day. I wouldn't recommend trying it with a thinsulate balaclava though - I almost sufficated!

comment How to inflate a tire with a Presta valve?
Presta valves are typically used in cases where a higher tire pressure is required - the pump you are using may not be able to handle pumping a tire up to 110 PSI. (or the guage may simply not show the pressure, in which case you may need to be careful of a blowout.)

I've done this before by accident - you need to get tube with a 60 mm valve instead of a 42 mm value

comment How much of a difference do Toe Pedal Clips make in comparison to Platform Pedals?
I got a set of pedals with toe clips about a week after asking this, but did not like them. I went clipless a few weeks later and have not looked back - they rock - thanks for the advice.

Since asking this question, I got a set of SPD pedals for my racer and totally agree - I got additional sets and now have them on all my bikes
