comment How do I deal with a dog chasing me when I'm touring?
It's not trespassing if you are riding down a public road. Please re-read the question.

comment Why does reducing bike weight have such an impact on speeds?
The three most likely answers: 1: if you measured it you wouldn't actually find much difference. 2: the new bike is more aerodynamic, it makes you ride in a more aerodynamic posture, and has much less mechanical resistance. 3: confirmation bias.

comment Why would one ever buy a 12-25 cassette when an 11-25 is available?
I only switch into my smallest cog when I'm taking off the wheel.

comment Can a 10-speed chain be used with a 9-speed cassette?
I've never tried this. I have tried a 10-speed chain on an 8-speed sprocket, and it was pretty fucky. The width of a 9-speed chain is 6.6 - 6.8mm, and a 10-speed is 6.2. It's not a small difference. I suspect that your shifting will be wonky. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_chain#Width
