comment How fast does new technology “trickle down” to lower models?
They definitely use different materials across the different lines. E.g. the brifters on low-end series are way more plastic, which affects durability. The higher end ones use bearings instead of bushings in the rear derailleur, which probably makes very little difference. I certainly wouldn't know it from the way I ride.

comment How can you speed a road-bike up?
@Kevin in light of recent events, it certainly seems like it's not about the bike.

comment How do you shift your weight when leaning on a turn?
The reason to leave your bike more upright while leaning with your body is if you want to / have to continue pedalling. It removes the possibility of pedal strike.

revised Is it better to breathe through your nose or mouth when cycling?
"Breathe" is a verb, ""breath" is a noun. Get it straight.
