comment Rear derailleur shifts all gears at once
I don't have an answer, but if your cassette was worn out, there is a good chance your chain may be stretched/worn-out too. Using a stretched chain on a brand new cassette can cause shifting problems.

comment Schwalbe Marathon Plus recurring puncture - options?
The Park Tool part number is TB-2 and I find that they are not temporary. I've run with a boot on the inside of my tire for well over a year.

comment What features make a good fitness tracker for cyclists?
Not sold or advertised as a Fitness Tracker, the new Garmin 920xt added activity tracking to the multisport watch that does all the stuff a GPS cycling device should (speed, cadence, map, power meter, HR, anything ANT+) but now also tracks my steps, sleep and beeps at me when I sit around too long. The GPS is only used for the running, cycling and open water swimming. You can get a quick release kit to mount it to your handlebars.

comment Are there any reasons why you would avoid going disc (other than cost) for racing cyclo cross?
I agree, swapping a disc wheel you won't need to release the brakes and re-connect, but I do find there are many more non-disc wheels available from friends at the races, buddies racing later or before me always offer hand-ups! I do clean my brakes, but still the grit and grime during the race adds up lap after lap. I love the mud, but as far as bike maintenance, CX can be expensive

comment How do I fit this pair of chain tensioners on my single speed bike?
@NickT This style of chain tensioner might not work with your frame. The image that mattnz found shows the 'slot' on the inside of the dropout. I agree that it is confusing, most frames don't have this slot or accommodate this style of tensioner

@NickT the "eyes" go in the dropout. Not on the outside and as Emyr said, not the inside as it should match the hub width so no room on the inside.

comment First cyclocross race - how to choose and set up the bike
Awesome - stick around (or go early looking at the schedule you might go last) and watch the more experienced racers.
