comment Can I approximate how much air pressure is lost from disconnecting the hose?
You should start by calibrating your pump. You can't improve the precision, but you can improve the accuracy.

comment Magnetic trainer failure
I assumed they were machined aluminum and not cast. Either way, I'd expect stress cracks at the mounting hole and not in the center of the disk.

comment Why use multiple materials on chainrings?
Considering that you can stand in any ring, I'd surmise that the maximum force applied to either ring could be the same. The smaller ring has less teeth and less chain contact, so there could be a greater force applied per tooth in the smaller ring.

comment What range of sprockets is useful in a road bike cassette?
+1 for the 11-32. On a SRAM WiFli setup, the difference between the 11-32 and the 11-28 is a 14 tooth cog which I don't miss.
