comment What are the advantages of flat spoked wheels?
So a disadvantage would be that they cost more money to us ;p

comment How tight should brakes and shifters be on the handlebars?
@PeteH I am expecting answers on the Why-s. It is true or a myth that levers should rotate in a crash?

@Mσᶎ, as is evident, I didn't even know the term. I would love to know the answers to the proposed by you question. However, I am even more interested in how to work with those, hence my edit. |IF you can sneak those in my question, or ask another and answer it, that'd be great!

comment How should I lubricate my Shimano freewheel?
A warning. I recently serviced the axle of an FH-M475. When re-assembling, I greased the bearings (not capsulated) with generous amount of thick grease. After reinstalling all dust covers and tightening the cassette to 40Nm... the freewheel wouldn't turn any more! The less than perfect solution was to remove one of the dust covers, which was pushing the grease inwards like a hydraulic piston.

comment Why aren't most suspension bikes extremely long travel?
The other day I rode 30+ km on a 160mm upright bike with downhill tires and grew to appreciate your post and the difference a laid-forward cross-country bike gives!

comment MTB Crank on a Cyclocross Bicycle?
A small difference is that MTB cranks attach the chainrings with 4 bolts, while road use 5 (Shimano). So chainrings are not compatible.
