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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment installing a 700-18-23C tube on a bicycle
@ChrisH I know they make Schraders with the threads all the way down like Prestas, but I've only ever seen them in pictures. Every one I've ever seen in real life has just enough threads for a cap.

What do you mean "it does not lend itself well"? Are you referring to a compatibility issue? A comfort issue? A fit issue? Aerodynamics? Something else entirely?

Welcome to Bicycles SE. This answer would be better if you explained the reasoning behind your preference for velo plugs, as well as the reason that you have less of a preference for low pressure tires.

comment Can I change chainring size on a dirt jump bike?
As @Mσᶎ says, it sounds like you're describing a chainring. Chainrings have teeth, the chain wraps around them, and they look like this. Is that right?

comment Wheels changing on Giant Rebel 4
As @BenediktBauer mentions, your question is a bit unclear. I think this is partially due to formatting issues and partially due to terminology issues. We have a Terminology Indes if you need help with terminology. It would also be helpful to edit your question to use complete sentences and proper punctuation.

comment Disc brake producing noise after a crash
That's usually what it sounds like when the disc is just barely rubbing on the pads. You probably knocked something out of alignment somewhere. If you hold the wheel off the ground and give it a spin, you'll probably be able to see it rub.
