comment What are the reasons for and against wearing a bicycle helmet?
Where does that "people who don't want to wear a helmet don't ride bikes" logic come from? Around here people who refuse to wear helmets ride without one.

comment Fixed-gear vs single-speed for clipless pedals
+1, tackstanding is in fact a basic mountain biking skill and they sure are not fixed. Also, cruising with your freewheel clickin' at full speed is the best feeling in the world. I don't see why you would want to get rid of that.

comment What brands of repair stands are sturdy?
+1 for the Park stand. Mine's super tough and easy to fold/shrink so I can carry it around.

comment Do glueless tube patches work as well as glue ones?
I've used glueless patches on my road bike (racing type bike) and my mtb (that I also use for occasional downhill at the local parks) and never had any issues. What kind of problems did you have?

I've seen cyclists hit each other. The fall can be pretty hard. Also, a "slow" fall on a curb or any similar object can have nasty results.

comment Why don't cyclists wear all-encompassing motorcycle-style helmets?
Take a look at this Google Image search for an idea of what bike full face helmets look it. Difference with moto helmet is that they're lighter (impacts come at much slower speeds) and more vented.

It discourages people from cycling ? Not saying it doesn't, just asking why you're saying that... people who don't want to wear a helmet cycle without one, they don't drive.

comment Does my bottom bracket need replacing?
It definitely should not be broken, but the side-to-side move is a pretty good sign of a broken BB.
