comment Should you use GT85 on your chain?
WD40 and GT85 aren't bad for your chain if used properly, which is to say for cleaning it. They're just not suitable lubricants.

comment How to stop handlebar from creaking
+1: over-tightening the handlebar clamp in particular can lead to the bar snapping at the edge of the clamp. If your stem is an aheadset with 4-bolt faceplate holding the bar, try to make sure all 4 bolts are evenly tight, so you're not focussing the pressure on one spot

comment Does the USADA have the authority to strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles?
I think this is technically correct, but misleading (as is the USADA soundbite in the question). If USADA decides confiscation of all titles is the appropriate sanction, UCI are likely bound to go along with that as a WADA signatory. That isn't quite the same as USADA having direct jurisdiction over French titles, but it gets the same result.

comment Why did the bike shop put grease on my seatpost?
If you have a better link to illustrate how commonly this happens (and is discussed), I'll happily edit it in.

Aluminium alloy seatposts can seize too. I'm not sure whether it only happens if the surface oxide layer is damaged during insertion, but it definitely happens.

comment wedge/saddle rail mounted bags interchange
I guess this is an MTB thing then (and tagged it as such). I have one of these, and I can't imagine loading enough weight in there that it could generate enough force to break the webbing or the buckles

comment Do skilled cyclists really “use the front brake alone probably 95% of the time”?
It's true that max braking force comes from the front wheel, but I interpreted Brad's statement as I'd rather risk a back wheel skid than a front wheel skid, which seems sensible

comment wedge/saddle rail mounted bags interchange
You can also get wedge bags that use straps and/or velcro instead of fixed mounts, if you just want to move a saddlebag between bikes and aren't already dependent on a specific fixed mount.
