comment Is this a puncture protection thing?
I think tubs are supposed to be more resistant to pinch flats, but I'm not aware they're less liable to sharp punctures

comment Do merino wool base layers need to be skin tight?
As an aside, the work wicking refers to a fabric's ability to transport sweat, not heat. Cooling still depends on airflow (which you've blocked with the jacket)

comment Is it normal for a fixed gear bicycle's rear wheel to slip forward in its dropouts from time to time?
A chain tensioner normally refers to a sprung jockey wheel thing used to take slack out of the chain (it wouldn't help here and isn't recommended with fixed gears anyway). If you have chain tugs though, figure out how they're slipping, because they shouldn't.

comment Combining flat bar and aerobar: Double stem setup or alternatives?
Have you considered butterfly bars? They should give more hand positions, and seem to offer a lot of variation in height and reach.

comment Is there an (un)official rule about twisting back a seat on broken bike for CitiBike or other shared bike programs?
I have seen the London bikes with their saddles twisted like this though, and assumed that is the reason. The NYC bikes are very similar so I'd expect they have the same button

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
If you want to derail the chain, it needs to be able to flex sideways a bit. If you want to fit multiple sprockets between the dropout and spokes, it limits their maximum thickness and the spacing between them. Fixed, singlespeed and hub-gear chains don't need that flex and are thicker and stronger.

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
@BillyONeal ... no reason why the metal on cassettes or chainrings would be any thinner. So you run a 1/8" chain with a derailleur? If you use the more usual 3/32", most fixed gear bikes will have 33% more material to absorb wear on each tooth

A wet sock you say? What I wouldn't give for so robust a response from the local criminal justice system.
