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

comment A general explanation of rim, tire and tube specifications
I'm not sure that a "general" explanation is possible. As a comment in a related question states, "manufacturers kind of made it up as they went along": bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/9238/…

comment Teaching an adult to ride
This is similar to some of the techniques suggested for children and seems like a good idea even for adults. See: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/452/…

comment Radon bikes - has anyone heard of them?
Welcome to Bicycles.SE. It seems like your question in its current form might be a little better suited for a forum. Could you clarify what your specific answerable question is?

comment Do higher speed crashes result in less serious injuries.

comment What's the shortest / easiest “granny gear” available?
My mountain bike had a 24x34 gear on 26x2.00 wheels, which according to the calculator is 18.2 gear inches. At 60 RPM, that gives 3.3 miles (walking speed). As silly as it feels to go that slow, it can be nice to have the option. :)
