@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.

That looks great. I didn't know such items exist. I'll have to procure one. Excellent answer.

Should I delete this question, or amend it somehow to reflect the error?

comment Not finding the right tension for my threadless headset
I think I might have figured it out. I think I don't have a crown race. I think that I'm using the compression ring where the crown race should be, and that for some reason my headset didn't come with a crown race. It's so obvious now; a crown race shouldn't have a separation, but the compression ring always does. So dumb. Now I have to buy a crown race.

@MikeBaranczak The cups are integrated. I'm not sure what you mean by binding, but there is definitely resistance when I turn the bars, but there is still knocking.
