comment Is it safe to go over roots at high speed on a cross-country bicyle?
Although at the price level of the bike, a chain guide will be too expensive. Also, the fork will soon (within a couple of months) develop movement in the stanchions, relative to the fork legs. This is normal for Suntour XCM.

A chain guide is another option.

comment How much does number of gears matter for a front derailleur?
That's a great argument why the rear speeds are of no concern whatsoever. Although that thing about the width of the cage and the width of the chain, that Batman talks about...

comment How much does number of gears matter for a front derailleur?
It appears I have been misunderstood. I am asking specifically about will a FD, with different number of gears by specification, from the rest of the system, work and will shift correctly? I am aware there is a bunch of other factors when selecting an FD. I am aware what I mean by 2x10.

comment Brake lever grips
Plastic levers are usually found on very low-end bikes. This is because at hard braking with 1 or 2 fingers, they flex and thus do not provide adequate feedback about the stopping force. Hence metal levers.

comment Will bending the seat post two inches forward cause any unforeseen structural issues?
The saddle is all the way forward? Different saddles have different length of rails. In particular, some expensive saddles have very short rails in order to save weight.

comment What are the downsides of a twisted wheel?
@Batman, I disagree, it's not that hard if one has patience and some understanding what they are doing. Besides, if every time one brings their bike to the shop, when will be that one first time?
