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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Is there a way to merge tracks within a GPX file?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. I think that your #3 should really be a whole separate question. It would be better if you edited it out of this question and then asked it as a new question.

comment Is it safe to go over roots at high speed on a cross-country bicyle?
From what I can tell, the Cube AIM is actually an entry-level MTB. Entry-level bikes are typically the same frame as more expensive versions of the same bike, but with lower quality parts. It looks like the fork on that bike is one of the places where they saved a lot of money. I didn't really dig too deeply, but that fork may not be designed for the type of riding that you're describing.

comment What are the top cyclist-caused types of crash?
The personal experience aspect of this question is the problem. As it stands, this question could easily have hundreds of answers. It would be better to focus on research, as @freiheit suggests.

comment What are the top cyclist-caused types of crash?
I have marked this as a Community Wiki for now. However, I'm on the fence as to whether or not it is actually a good candidate for CW. My concern is that I believe it is likely to devolve into a series of horrific/funny/tragic stories and not actually be constructive.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. Please use proper sentence structure when composing your posts. And also note that we have a global audience. Without any reference to what country you're talking about, the law you cite is meaningless. Furthermore, in many locations it actually is legal for a cyclist to treat a stop light as a stop sign and treat a stop sign as a yield sign. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idaho_stop

comment How do I go about choosing a bike for commuting?
As @Tom mentions, you're really asking a lot of different questions here. My suggestion would be to start at your local bike shop. You'll pick up a lot more in face-to-face interactions than you will on any online forum. And poke around the site some. We have a lot of questions about geometry, commuter bikes, and cyclocross. I think you'll find that many of your questions have already been answered.

comment How do I choose a light GPS device supporting Strava?
The question is still too broad and primarily opinion-based. Things like "what features should I look for" are going to be highly dependent on individual preferences. As far as selecting the "lightest/best" device, I recommend checking the device specs to see which one is the lightest and reading online reviews to determine which is the best. Ultimately, what is best is also going to be primarily opinion-based.
