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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

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.

@PeteH It seems to be pretty clearly a request for a product recommendation to me. But feel free to cast a reopen vote.
