comment Can I use normal grease for a car on the surface of carbon bike?
@DanielRHicks true enough - the Finish Line stuff is definitely safe though (I'll add it to my answer)

comment Is it a bad idea to take a commuter bike for a 50 - 100km ride?
Not sure we'll ever agree on this, but presumably someone who uses a bike regularly for commuting would also benefit from knowing how to fix a puncture. Plus I've been in a position when we've had new riders join our group, and it's pretty annoying when they a) don't know how to change a puncture, and b) have to borrow inner tubes etc from other members of the group. I carry two, but that doesn't mean one for me and one for you!!

@DanielRHicks until your cellphone is out of battery or you have no reception, and there's no-one about. Besides which it's a bit selfish to rely on others! I would argue that a pump, levers and inner tube(s) should be with you on every ride!
