comment Is it ethical to ride with races without being part of them?
@Criggie, most probably I am not using the correct term. You pay about 1 euro for a day or 15 euro for a year. If you call the national mountain rescue teams, you have the first 500 euro "free". If you purchase a more expensive insurance (only the basic is required for races), you can cover the cost on a heli evac or a multi-man multi day search party.

Do you classify as "closed" an XC race, where on crossing asphalt roads, signs have been put for cars to pass with care?

@Frisbee, hikers walking their dogs can also cause an incident to a rider (or rather the other way around). In my country, only DH trails are forbidden for hikers and those can be counted on fingers.

What about races on hiking trails? I guess if the area was really closed, they wouldn't let an unnumbered rider there at all - that's what closed means, right.

comment What is the significance of tire minimum pressure?
I have noticed (and read) that rim outside diameter and tire bead diameter are subject to significant tolerances. For example, from the same rim one tire could require tire levers and significant force to remove while another could be removed just by hand. How do those tolerances correspond to minimum pressure, especially when it is not know which rim will be used?

comment Why only ball bearings on bicycles?
That's interesting. I never opened a sealed BB. Why BBs but not the much slower rotated headsets? Why only in the past?

comment Why no wheels with rope instead of spokes?
@Criggie, just wait till you read about the guy that filled his tubes with water instead of air.
