comment Biking to the airport / leaving a bike for a week
Different airports will offer different options, some have bike lockers (lockers big enough to put your bicycle into), others bike valet parking. Check your local airport website. San Francisco has a nice page all about bicycle parking at flysfo.com/to-from/biking

comment Considering Cassette Upgrade
You can, but will also need a new 10sp derailleur, 10sp chain and 10sp 'brifter' (brake/shift lever) . Your hub will fit a 10sp cassette. You may be able to fit a 9sp 11-32 cassette or even larger depending on if you have a long or short cage derailleur. Search this bicycles Stack Echange, lots of info on both these options.

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
