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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

@andy256 In most of the world that would be true, but here in the 'Murica we use the ridiculous Fahrenheit scale.

comment Noticeable clicking from crankset or bottom bracket
@clamp Because metal transfers energy really well, it wouldn't be surprising that it felt like it was coming from one place but was actually coming from another. In my experience, a rhythmic click that you can feel is usually from the pedals. It could also be the pedal spindle itself rather than the bolt that attaches to the crank arm. Check to see if the pedal wiggles at all. If it does, the spindle is your culprit.

Whether or not cops, and people in general, will be understanding depends entirely on the individual. The culture in a given locale will likely influence the people/officers there one way or another, but whether or not they will be understanding nearly always boils down to the individual's biases, opinions, temperament, mood, etc.

comment Benefits of newer racer bikes over older ones?
@PeteH Discs will most likely be fine for competition by the end of the year. They say in the article that availability is one of their biggest concerns and it looks like that's not going to be a problem.

comment Is hydroformed tubing good?
I meant easier to manufacture. My point is that asking if something is better is open to various interpretations based on what it's better for or how it's better.
