comment Rear disc calliper won't fit, disc mount bent?
Whats brand is the bike frame and how old - branded frames sometimes have lifetime warranties and usually a few years. The unused ISIS tags with and with poor quality control could easily leave the factory that way.

Option is a new frame or stick with rim brakes

comment Feet slip off flat/cleat hybrid pedals when it's wet
@Batman - that is what I do, do not want to get into answering the 'what type of pedal/shoe is best' question as the number of times it has been answered on this site is already once more than needed :)

comment What is a power meter and why do I need one?
I would also add a power meter is only as good at the person interpreting the data. An idiot coach with a power meter is still and idiot, a great coach without a power meter is still a great coach.

comment Guidelines for building tape delimited MTB courses
Some of my local forest trails tracks are being widened (as in cutting down trees) to accommodate the wide (800-850mm)handle bars that are now fashionable because idiots that think they know how to ride keep getting handle bar strike.... Don't make it 4 meters wide everywhere, a MTBer needs to be able ride a 1 meter wide (At handle bar height) trail.

comment Rear derailleur hitting chainstay (video in the post)
It should be quite simple to adjust, so if you have problems with this adjustment, consider It is also possible other things like dérailleur alignment or dérailleur is faulty

comment Rear derailleur hitting chainstay (video in the post)
Chain looks OK now, but if you get the dérailleur rotated to clear the chain stay it may be too short. You should adjust the screw (and the high and low stops) then adjust the the shifting. The screw is used to set the clearance between the dérailleur and cluster, which should be about 5mm (Closer gives more precise shifting, too close rubs). Best bet is use google to find out how, and treat as if its an install of a new dérailleur (This adjustment should not be needed after initial installation)

comment Other than spoke count, is there a strength ratings for wheels?
Aside from extremes and exotics, lack of maintenance and build quality are by far the two biggest causes of wheel failure, followed by tire size and pressure.

I am sure you will break one of "The Rules" (velominati.com/the-rules), but do what works for you

comment App to find the shortest route with the least amount of climbs?
Great start, and has to be targeted at an average person, but everyone is different - I am a strong climber and relatively weak on the flat, so do better on hills than my peers. Others hate hills and would double the distance to avoid a climb. In the end a route calculator would need to provide choices for the user to select from.

comment Cord showing near bead
Brakes are the touch point but may not be the cause. Wheel problems - miss alignment or sideways movement, frame problems (cracks) - flex under cornering. In all cases the less obvious, the more serious the problem might be.

comment Cord showing near bead
Is it only this section, or around all/most of the rim? Is it possible the wheel was incorrectly installed and rubbing brakes at some stage, but now its sitting correctly and looks good?

comment How can I stop my toes from going numb on long rides?
As you have changed shoes and pedal, its more likely its higher up than feet. Have a look at you bike fit - professional fitting is best but can be expensive. Make adjustments to seat height and position on the rails and see if it improves (or gets worse)
