Is this a disc brake version?

comment What does “claiming the lane” mean?
+1 Yep that's how I see it. It's necessary in London sometimes to avoid being squashed and when traffic is usually moving slower than you are so wont get irritated and try dangerous overtaking. I most often claim the lane at traffic lights and roundabouts.

comment Minimum mountain groupset hard enough to resist abuse
Hi, this will be tricky to answer without more info about your riding style. Can you let us know: "riding harder" uphill or downhill or much longer distances or much gnarlier terrain. For example: If you're becoming a strong uphill rider we don't want to be recommending Saint for example ;) - this questions will attract subjective answers so might be kicked off anyhow.. but we'll see!

comment Is it possible to transport many (up to 12) bikes using some sort of auto-trailer?
If you google Image search "uplift trailer" you'll see loads! I reckon there will be someone offering hireable trailers. You might be able to purchase one second-hand from an uplift service that deals with Downhill Mountain Bikers.

comment Why are higher-end freewheels so much louder when coasting?
Lound freehub's seem to give the impression of a positive pawl action. I know that the best all-round MTB hubs I've run are Hope Pro's, and are 'BMX' loud. On that note, noisy BMX freewheels are considered desirable :)
