comment Rubbing disc brake caliper
Axles should have small amount of play in them when not done up. Tightening the QR removes this play and properly preloads the bearings. If the QR is not tight enough the play will still be there.

comment Should I avoid sitting on top tube on my carbon bike?
My wild guess is the soft tissue of a human in that region is less robust than the lightest carbon frame.

comment When to replace rear derailleurs
MTB or road? Recreational or compedative riding? Lotto winner or student? When you get tired of tuning it all the time or poor gear shifts is as good a time as any.....

comment How to protect rear derailleur while mountain biking?
Hate to suggest it, as it goes against every normal recommendation, but cross chaining (Stay on a larger front than normal, going to a larger rear cog) could also help by bringing the derailleur inboard.
