comment How do you adjust the set-up of road bike brakes for women with small hands
I spoke to the bike shop today, and this is what they have suggested. We'll see how well this works, otherwise it may be a change in shifter.

comment How can you recognise a quality steel frame?
Not sure what you mean by low recycling stocks, but aluminium can be recycled very easily at much less energy cost the original production. Also, aluminium is one of the most common elements in the earth's crust - we're not going to run out of it for a long, long time.

comment How can you recognise a quality steel frame?
I'd like to say yes you can tell by flicking the frame, but I really don't know.

comment What effect does changing the stem length have on my bikes handling
Are you jumping or taking drop offs? If you are finding that the nose of the bike is dropping when you ride off a drop off, it could be more of a technique issue.

comment Can I ride home with a broken spoke?
No problems. If it's a road bike you can usually try flicking up the little lever on the brake caliper that makes taking the tyre out a bit easier. This gives the brakes more clearance and can avoid the drag. Just make sure you check that you can still lock up the brakes with the amount of movement you have left in the lever.

Great call on the fenders. One of the most worthwhile additions to an urban commuting bike.
