comment Does price have a huge impact on the quality of road bikes?
@Michael - although-true, its unlikely someone will fit Ultegra to a BSO :) Best bet for a novice is LBS's - some have second hand bikes and although a bit more expensive, are well worth it for a novice. if going private, limit the bike search to a couple of well known brand and model bikes, up to 5 years old. use the internet to compare pictures and make sure its the same bike (colour.decals etc).

Shifters are on the bars by the stem, 7 speed - early 1990's technology.

comment How does riding on bumpy road while suspension fork locked and without slow down effects?
You, no harm. How bumpy? If cars drive down it, no harm to bike if going no faster than most cars.

comment How to improve one's bike handling skills?
I would put learning Stoppies higher up the list as it helps in real life emergencies if you are confident about using the front brake to the maximum.

comment Can I install a gears cassette on a regular bike?
The cheapest solution might be to leave it single speed, but lower the gearing so its easier to ride up hills (you will need to pedal faster along the flat though). All that is needed is to replace the rear cog with a larger one.

comment What is the benefit of fat tires on pavement?
In mud you usually want to dig into it to get to the hard base. Sand and snow are the only two surfaces I can think of where spreading the weight over a bigger area.
