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/…

comment Why don't cyclists wear all-encompassing motorcycle-style helmets?
Even with traffic speed one should know what happens behind. Mirrors, of course, allow doing that almost unconsciously ;-)

If there weren't so many rules about what bikes are allowed riders might even consider to switch when eing in a break-away-group or something ... like starting ;-)

comment Should I get a road bike?
So what's the actual, notable benefit of the road bike? And well, I like the "One more than you currently have ..." comment from above, but somehow I have to quantify it "yes, I spent X thousand Euros on a bike" ...and renting, yeah, probably I have to find a place to rend some bike in roughly the price range I'm willing (able) to spend ... I think it isn't useful to get a cheap rental road bike and then being disappointed ... while that might save me money ;-)
