comment How to calculate the capacity of a rear derailleur
Excellent answer. Exactly what I was looking for. I suppose it would be wishful thinking to find similar information for defunct manufacturers (e.g. exage, ofmega) anywhere. It should be within the same ballpark though. Thank you.

comment Theft deterrents (in addition to locking up a bike)
One that I don't often hear, but I think it's what has saved me all these years (knock wood): be tall. If you're taller than 90% of the population, that's 90% of thieves that can't ride off with your bike.

@ChrisW I rode mine through a winter a few years back (in Toronto too, incidentally) and they were barely-protruding nubs by springtime.

comment Cantilever Brakes - Cyclocross
Sure it's cheaper once, but not once you're in the habit of buying pricier pads. That adds up.

comment Using a ski helmet for winter biking
That looks great. I didn't know such items exist. I'll have to procure one. Excellent answer.
