Appreciate that; I changed it to the Wippermann link, as not everyone will be able to buy from Competitive Cyclist.

Grant Peterson of Rivendell Bicycle Works is a famous lycra refusenik, i.e., a cyclist who refuses to wear anything but regular clothes when he rides. There is a reason he sells Brooks Saddles: rivbike.com

comment How do I calculate calories burnt using my bicycle's weight?
The formula above given by @Weirix assumes a constant heart rate, which might be useful for a very rough estimate. I have not looked at the FirstBeat algorithm used by Garmin, et al., but I would guess it is a bit more sophisticated, and I'd be willing to wager the number it yields is far more accurate.

comment pedal crank moves and tries to slip off the axle
It would be helpful to know specifically what sort/brand of pedal we're referring to here.

comment What is mysteriously slicing the inside of my tubes?
@Jimself, look at the way the tape or strip or whatever is lying in the channel of the wheel. Can it move in any way? If so, can the spoke holes be exposed? If so, this may be the root of the problem. Your picture looks to have a patch obscuring the cut; can you show a picture of the cut?

comment What is mysteriously slicing the inside of my tubes?
@Jimself, again I would encourage, don't use electrical tape or duct tape inside your tire. A good quality rim strip, properly installed, should solve your problem. Be sure to buy the right size. youtu.be/X8NfF3vTY08
