comment What is the relationship between tyre pressure and weight?
Ah ok, the concept of trying to make the ride more difficult didn't even occur to me. Hah!

Why did you drop the pressure when doing the 8-9km commute? I've missed something there.

comment How do I make my brakes stop squealing?
I'd be interested to know if this is a temporary cure and has to be repeated. I wonder if the powder dries up any grease and grime.

comment Shoaling etiquette
I've found that when you have the opportunity to line up next to other cyclists - as we do in in most of the UK city junctions (See the image at the bottom of nidirect.gov.uk/cycling-skills-and-safety-turns-and-junctions) - then often slower cyclists (folders, MTBs) will stay far left and commuters/messengers will stay right to air immediate overtaking when the lights change.

Can you tell us which sort of valves your tyres have, and what sort of rims your wheels have? If they are deep v-section rims then that could explain the problem.

comment How to get back on the road again?
I would definitely learn to confidently side-hop left or right. This will allow you to stay at whatever speed you are doing, does not require much of change of direction, and once you're good you will be able to hop vertical and horizontal distances of 10cm with no trouble. I used it almost daily on commutes in Bristol, UK and London to get up and down high curbs.

comment Should I sell a custom built mountain bike as a full bike or break it into parts?
@kibbee Yea totally agree, stripping only works well on eBay.
