You're right, reach adjust doesn't mean what I thought it meant. ;)

So I cited the good bits and encourage going to see the rest. Is that an improvement?

About that downvote to whoever did it, is it really necessary to re-write something up when a link provides the necessary information?

comment Pre ride checks
+1. I might add that checking if the quick release levers (if any) are tight enough is something you should check. You'll rarely catch them loose, but you don't want to discover that they were by losing a wheel.

comment How do I change a road bike into a commuter bike?
If you currently have drop bars you'll have to buy new shifters and brake levers to make the switch to a flat bar setup. I don't know what is "cheaply" for you, but it will be tough.

@neilfein: The GT Fury and the Santa Cruz V-10 Carbon are downhill racing mountain bikes. They're certainly tough. They are definitely "thicker, heavier, and more expensive."

comment What's the definition of a Mixte?
"Mixte" is most often used to describe a group of persons (a "mixte" school, a "mixte" kids sports team, etc.) than an object that is for both men a women, but it is most likely used here with a "unisex" sense based on that. I'd give you the badge French-speaker-approved if I could. ;) Disclaimer: I'm a French-Canadian, it might be used differently in France where the term probably comes from.
