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.

Thanks @DanielRHicks, really helpful :D. Fitting answer for Friday afternoon, though.

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.

comment Is it harmful for a hydraulic brakes bike to be put upside down
Note that the leaking lever has another disadvantage: it is unwieldy for me.

comment Is it harmful for a hydraulic brakes bike to be put upside down
I found my problem. The reservoir cap on the lever leaks oil, when the bike has been upside down for a minute or more. Good news is, I bought two sets of dirt-cheep brakes and the other model is not exhibiting this behavior. Bad guy: BL-M505L, Good guy: BL-M486.

> Your frame is designed for an 80mm travel fork and I'm afraid at that size there are no options to go any bigger without voiding the frame warranty. Specialized

More concretely, what would be the minimalistic sleeping gear? Sleeping mats are bulky. And then what happens if it rains...
