comment What is the braking (stopping) distance for bicycles?
Yeah just about to answer the same. I would also say the road surface and tyre width play a big part too. And of course the classic are you using front or back brake.

comment BMX gearing - for road / commuting
Have a play around with this sheldonbrown.com/gears and to be honest your best bet is to work out what gearing is right for yourself. If you have someone with a higher gear ratio try a spin on their bike and see how it fits and work from that

comment How to avoid riding on a gravel on the road sides? + Riding through traffic lights

comment I'm lost with all the names of bike parts flying around!
No offence but what do you need that you can't get from your LBS? Unless track cycling is non existent by you I'd imagine they would have all the parts necessary, the only difference between a fixie and standard bike is the rear hub
