comment Bicycle lights- Indicating in the dark
@CearonO'Flynn looks like the surface quality of the streets you have are fare better than mine's. Not to mention drivers' disrespect around here. Thank God they started to increase the number of bike paths recently.

comment Would hydraulic disc brakes be easier on my hands than mechanical disc brakes?
@Emyr Yeah, you are right, I guess I meant static friction... Anyway, compared to a sub-optimal cable, the friction is much lower.

comment How to fix a stripped pedal crank
@RoboKaren I agree aluminum is more difficult, but definitely possible. The ones I have seen fixed that way were aluminum.

comment What is the usual pattern of use of a velodrome (cycling track)?
Hi, Andy, thanks for your nice answer! Unfortunately, not only we have not got any velodrome but also, despite the steady increase in bicycle use in my city, City Hall has shown itself as the worst I have ever seen regarding policies for use of open and public spaces... Anyway, there is growing discontent from every possible segment of activism, and we hope to raise awareness so that future politicians should be elected with different priorities than, shopping malls and abundant car infrastructure :o(

comment Why are hand-built wheels considered to be better than machine-built wheels?
I agree the second and third points are a bit speculative, but the "bending-around-crossing" technique gives the spoke a characteristic shape that I haven't seen in any other wheel than the ones I laced myself, be it machine-built or not. So I assume this bending is not usually performed in industry or by local mechanics, but rather only by more crafted wheelbuilders (or ones that read Sheldon Brown a lot).
