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 does tire pressure affect the weight of the wheels
I seriously doubt that it's an appreciable amount, but this is a fascinating question. I hope someone has the knowledge and/or equipment to come up with an answer.

comment When riding with a single pannier, does it matter which side it's on?
@Kibbee I've used those in the past but have found that I have a habit of accidentally snapping them off.

comment When riding with a single pannier, does it matter which side it's on?
@PeteH It's not really a design flaw, just a couple of factors coming together in a bad way. The light is low because it's a suspension seatpost and the pannier is a Timbuk2 Shift, which just happens to sit high.

Nothing is mounted incorrectly. It's not the tire and frame that blocks it, it's the pannier. It's a seatpost mounted light with a Timbuk2 Shift pannier, which just sits high up on the rack. And the seatpost is a suspension seatpost, so the light has to be mounted low. You can see the light just fine from behind, but as you pass it just kind of disappears behind the pannier.

comment Is a Giant TCX W wrong for me if I want to use it for around town and occasional long rides?
@Akshay is correct. The CX geometry also typically includes a longer wheelbase and a more upright riding position.

comment Creaking From Bottom Bracket
Definitely check out Sheldon's page mentioned by @Batman. Also, check the "Related" question to the right. There are already a number of questions about creaking bottom brackets on the site. If you feel that none of these addresses your issue, vote to reopen your question.

comment What bike for a long distance tour. What to change on current set up?
Focusing on lighter gear and reducing what you pack will usually make far more significant weight reductions than swapping out bike parts.
