comment Does rear-shock placement affect suspension characteristics?
Shock placement also affects center of gravity, although with an air shock the effect is tiny. The lower the better.

comment What are the benefits of 700c23 tires?
The puncture resistance of a tire is related to the total amount of air volume, not the pressure, which is why you can run lower pressures in a wider tire, and have the same puncture resistance as running high pressure in a narrow tire.

comment What are the benefits of 700c23 tires?
"higher pressures equate to higher speeds."This is a contentious issue. Some people claim that on real-world surfaces this is not true, as lower pressures allow the tire to better conform to cracks and bumps.
