It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment How much light is enough for year round commuting?
I've removed the last sentence of your question asking for specific product recommendations as that's off topic for this site. It'll be more likely to remain open that way. Although it is still bordering on being too broad. It's up to the community whether or not to leave it open.

comment How to get over anger at inconsiderate drivers
@Mark Welcome to Bicycles SE. We ask that users remain civil on this cite. Your statement "You obviously do not understand how logic works" is belittling and rude. Please keep this in mind when using the site in the future.

comment What are the advantages/disadvantages of press fit bottom brackets compared with threaded?
Are you asking about external vs. cartridge style bottom brackets, press fit vs. threaded external, or a comparison of all three?

comment What's the logic behind this chain length estimation method?
Incidentally, you're actually only supposed to add one full link. A single chain link is two pieces: two half links, an inner half link and an outer half link. See the illustration on the linked (pun not intended) page for a better visual of the difference between a half link and a full link.

comment Is there a 3rd party tool to create a heat map of all activities in a specific area?
@PeteH I don't see a functional difference. The answers would still end up being a string of equally valid recommendations. But whether or not it makes a difference would be a good topic for Meta. And again, you have enough rep to cast a reopen vote. If you cast one and the community decided to reopen it, I wouldn't squash that decision.

comment Bike chain too long?
As @Blam points out, your cassette is most likely worn. The venerable Sheldon Brown has a wonderful article about how chains and rear cogs wear together and then everything goes to pot when you replace the chain.

@mattsolar The Stack Exchange Q&A format doesn't work well with product recommendations. The Bicycles SE community in particular toyed with the idea of keeping them open, but ultimately decided that they weren't a good fit. You are always welcome to ask in chat.
