comment How to clean rubber and plastic parts with sticky, thick teflon-based lube stains?
The teflon lube, as soon as applied months ago, evaporated and left the characteristic wax-like teflon coating inside the working surface of the shifter. But with use, the edge of the shifter was a bit sticky, since some lube was coming out. When I disassembled and started cleaning, the brushing just spread the wax-like, somewhat dirty teflon over the rubber surface. The rubber itself seems fine, but it's dirty with teflon. It's not impossible, though, that it penetrated the rubber a bit, but I would like to try to clean it with a proper method so that I can know.

comment Tires for 28' city bike (622x19C) to reduce rolling resistance?
I used a pressure that provided enough cushioning without the tire bulging or bottoming out easily. That means the narrower tire had higher pressure. Usually I ride at 20 mph (30km/h) cruising speed.

Fun is when you are at 40mph+ down a fire road on an 1.95 tire XC hardtail, and suddenly an eroded rock garden appears around the corner and you think "OMG, I'm dead"... And you manage to float inside it somehow and emerge ALIVE at the other side... Now THAT is fun!
