comment Dual position air, solo air, coil, rebound: what do they mean about forks?
There exist cheep forks that use elastomers for dampening and have coil springs in both legs. However, I do not know about mid-range an racing forks. Hence the question.

By hydraulic I am referring to the damping system, using oil. Compressing gasses is known as pneumatics as far as I know.

comment How to measure chainring / cog wear?
The controversial statement "No cassette wear tool exists" is extracted from the video. I edited the sentence a little and added a bit more context. The video is awesome, watch it!

comment Tire Gauge to Avoid Over-Inflation
@Kibbee, Bar has a couple of definitions, all being rougly 100kPa. Note that this is approximately the pressure which the atmosphere of Earth has on us, humans! (In my language, we use "Atmosphere" interchangeably with Bar).

comment Rotating 2 chains on one cassete
+1 Wise words. However, I fer this could grow into the "I will leave the dishes in the sink to soak and will wash them tomorrow ... aaand it's 3 months later, no clean dishes at home".

comment Tire Gauge to Avoid Over-Inflation
+1 I would be curious if someone could provide typical accuracy measures of some mid-range pumps (for example the one from the question).

Note that from about 2 Bar up tire pressure can't be measured by squeezing the tire with hand.

comment When to lube a chain?
The latter, I am doing. One chain broke without being worn out, that's why I'm asking how to prevent that.

comment When to lube a chain?
I broke an (expensive) 10-speed chain only after about 4-5 rides of 100km, flat off-road but muddy, with cleaning with a rag and lubing with teflon chain-lube (then re-swiping) between rides. After I fixed the broken link, I went to a mechanic (without re-greasing in the meantime) and he said "quite normal, your chain is dry as hell". Then I noticed that when rotating the crankarms backwards, the chain kind of grinds against itself. This is the major motivation behind this question.
