comment Can your rims wear down from too much braking?
The determining factor is what you ride through, not the type of bike. Ride through crud, crud accumulates on the pads and causes wear every time you squeeze the levers.

comment What are the pros and cons of a Turbo Trainer over Training Rollers?
Thanks, I edited and added that. I did not add about vibration; if anything that's a con of both, though it depends quite a bit on the specific brand, and where you put it. A simple foam mat can mitigate all but the worst offenders.

comment Alternatives for front shifting for small hands
I did think about electronic shifters, a little. Definitely pretty spendy new, but maybe I can find a used one that won't break the bank.

comment What's the shelf life of tublar tires?
I have heard this before, and it always cracks me up. I imagine walking up to the counter at the bike shop, saying, "I'd like 2 of your finest cave-aged tubulars, please!" BTW the inimitable Jobst Brandt agrees that there's no benefit: sheldonbrown.com/brandt/tubular-fables.html
