comment Is it unhealthy to fail this bike fit and why?
@DanielRHicks, indeed I am passing the 'heels on the pedals and the legs are straight' test. Then I ride with the front of the foot over the axle (not the arch) and my legs are just a little bent.

comment Rebuilding a rear wheel
Strange: You can usually just transfer the old spokes to a new rim, avoiding the need to relace the wheel -- quoted by Sheldon, search the page for the text.

comment Any tips on riding a roll-off, followed by a trench?
That's a great idea. The worst that could happen is slide down into the trench (right?).

comment Any tips on riding a roll-off, followed by a trench?
@Batman, I don't think so. The area is about this steep. The flat is a dirt road, on the other side there is descent as well. Hopefully I can take a picture some time, but don't count on it.

@DanielRHicks, tried that, worked fine. The question is about riding down ;)

comment Rebuilding a rear wheel
@DanielRHicks, the wheel is dirt cheep (46BGN) plus the problem occurred during a short tour with panniers. So all the spokes should be replaced? Why are 24 most difficult? Is the rim weakened by the 30km with 4 broken spokes with paniers (sideways oscillations of amplitude several centimeters)? The rim is double walled and the spoke holes seem to have eyelets.

comment What parameters are important when replacing a rear hub?
So no "hub flange diameter" and angles and lengths and moon phase?
