comment Disk brake wheels - multiple wheelsets
If you're running mechanical discs, you'll want to tighten the inner pad down until it touches the pad before loosening the caliper and then back it off again afterward. If you don't back it off at the end, it'll rub. And if you don't tighten it up at the beginning you'll end up with a totally backed off pad after a couple of wheel changes.

comment Can I cut down a quick release skewer?
I'm with @Carel. Skewers are cheap enough that it's not worth the trouble of cutting it.

comment Food for 400+km ride? (in single session)
Welcome to Bicycles SE. Unfortunately, questions like this are too broad for our format. There are some related questions to the right which might be helpful. The Velodrome would also be a great place to discuss good riding foods. It's much more free form.
