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

comment What are the most significant factors affecting downhill cruising speed?
@lmjohns3, the moment of inertia and mass do matter (pun not intended), but they're not forces, so they aren't in the list. They determine how much acceleration is given by a force, but I don't believe they should affect the final speed once the forces are equal. I'd have to think this through a little more.

comment (Automatic Bike Project) amount of torque required to change gears?
Maybe I'm just being dumb, but if you're pulling a cable linearly, wouldn't it be an issue of force rather than torque?
