comment Sources of vibration at high speed in and around rear wheel
It turned out that it was #5 -- the bearings in the hub were worn out. The rim was also worn, so replacing the wheel solved the problem.

comment Are flat handlebars stable at high speed?
OK, sounds like the answer is "yes, since it depends more on frame geometry than handlebars".

Even being in the hoods feels iffy at speed, so I don't think it's just how far apart my hands are.

comment How can I properly replace the hose on this older Schwinn pump?
@Benedikt, I believe that's the core of my question. :) How can I check if the thread is the right size? Is there a name or spec for the threads that I have? How could I figure it out with normal household measuring tools?

@JohnP, the question is pretty specific on those dimensions. I asked about road ascents, grade, and height, not mountain biking or the other dangers you list.

comment What is considered the maximum safe downhill speed on a road bike?
@user: given the context, you can be highly confident it's miles per hour.

comment Can I damage my brakes by testing them vigorously?
Sometimes I can take them all the way to the bars, sometimes not. It’s very hard to do so. They are cantilever brakes (non-V-brakes). The wheel is true within a couple of mm, and the pads ride just a hair away from rubbing with very modest toe-in. I don’t think they’re set up wrong.
