comment Tips on buying a beginner mountain bike
I'm quite sure that riders like Lance Armstrong are looking for the est bike and that most manufactures are happy to have their brand shown in such an environment. Still I wouldn't take that as an argument (as long as my body, riding style, needs, ... are different)

comment What's special about bicycle socks?
Looking at modern running shoes - they're designed to return as much energy as possible back for the next step ... absorbing socks might be countereffective, there, too.

eBay and craigslist - many stolen bikes are listed there. I know of at least one case where a stolen bike found its original owner again due to those great services ;)

comment Velodrome atmospheric conditions
Just curios: Who are "the commentators" in this case? TV people, or ones at the venue etc. At least TV commentators talk a lot on long days. ;-)

comment You just had an accident, what's next?
"If it's someone else's property, like a car or a mailbox, and there's damage, leave a note with your contact info." - In German jurisdiction just leaving a note might be illegal ("unberechtigtes Entfernen vom Unfallort" / "unauthorized leaving of the accident scene") - You have to try to identify and contact the owner or at least register the accident with the police. - I'm not saying everybody does though .... sometimes their are people witnessing this, though

comment What bikes will be used by the competitors in the Mountain Bike Olympics?
As addition: I don't know if there's some country-check on that site but German broadcaster ZDF has an interview with German rider Sabine Spitz with some closeups of her bike in studio: zdf.de/ZDFmediathek/hauptnavigation/startseite/#/beitrag/video/…
