comment Are there any 'anti-fly' masks on the market?
I have this mask and it is hard to breathe through. I use it during winter to keep my breath warm.

Trials "bike" is somewhat similar to the DJ one.

comment Are Hollowtech II bottom bracket normal?
Did you use a dynamometric wrench (in case this is not a press-fit bb)?

comment Can you take apart rear derailleurs, and how do you put them back together again?
Your derailleur has silver in it? What, is is some Super XXXXTR series? (this is meant as a joke)

comment Are road tyres suitable for any off-road riding at all?
It probably depends on skill as well: youtube.com/watch?v=HhabgvIIXik

comment Adjusting saddle angle on a road bike (drop bars)
Btw, Specialized Riva is a woman specific saddle, that I (male) find being the most comfortable seat on Earth. The reviews in Mtbr list the same impression by other men.

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?

@7thGalaxy, I expect to be better able to detect ongoing defects in the bike while rolling on smooth surface.

comment Dual position air, solo air, coil, rebound: what do they mean about forks?
Thanks. This 'Dual Air' was really puzzling me.

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.

comment Dual position air, solo air, coil, rebound: what do they mean about forks?
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!
