I've been commuting by bike since 2009. I enjoy road cycling and occasional mountain biking.

comment Switching to Lower Gears for Climbing
Like I said, there's no harm in trying a lower gear if you think there will be an improvement.

comment What are the steepest, highest, most miserable road ascents in the world?
This question is fun, but is it really answerable? The answers are already starting to turn into an awkward list.

comment Does the USADA have the authority to strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles?
@NeilFein, since other answers describe the USADA's specific relationships with other international organizations as described in other answers, a contradictory answer should have at least a little bit of evidence.

Would you consider adding references to support this argument?

That's interesting--was there anything unique about the situations where you went over-the-handlebar using the front brake?

comment What makes one road tire have a less “bouncy” ride than another?
This possibility crossed my mind, but I often let the tire drop to 80 or even below before refilling, so the 28mm tire at 80 psi feels bouncier than the 25mm tire at 105 psi. (Incidentally, I overinflate a bit just so I won't have to pump as frequently.)

comment Are Velomobiles street legal in the UK?
A bike with clipless pedals doesn't have pedal reflectors either, so this law would hypothetically affect more cyclists than recumbent riders.

"I use my front brake if I know I'm going to be fully stopping, such as at a stop light or intersection." In this case, do you use only your front brake or both front and back? If not both, is there any particular reason?
