comment Why am I breaking a ridiculous number of spokes?
The town bikes with a very upright seating position, which sound similar, generally get called "Dutch bikes" in the UK. Now I wonder what the Dutch call them.

comment Why am I breaking a ridiculous number of spokes?
Out of interest, I've seen a couple of references to a "Eurobike". They're both in scare quotes, and I have no idea what it means. Any chance of an entry in the regional vocab or terminology wikis?

comment Are there devices to moderate speed on mountain descents without braking?
I can do 30mph fixed with no problems, and it's not a particularly high gear - if you find a gear that will get you up, you just need to practise spinning on the way down (note that you can just let the pedals pull your feet round if you relax, and you get a similar engine-braking effect to downshifting in a car). Or, of course, stop at the top and swap sprockets ...
