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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Don't integrated headsets wear out, ruining the frame?
I'm not saying that I disagree, but it's probably worth noting that Chris King's business was built on traditional headsets. As a result, he's not exactly an impartial authority.

comment Can you help identify this bike?
Can you add some close-ups of anything and everything that has a name or logo on it? I see something on the seatpost, front shock, and maybe the rear shock. If there are any other labels that we can't see in this pic, those would help too.

comment Broken glass on the bicycle path, what to do?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. We tend to frown on self-promotion on this site. Please do so only if it is necessary to answer the question at hand. Also, the OP specifically stated "I am not really looking for material advice, but rather for tips on how to drive through glass" so your answer does not really address what he is asking for.

comment Bike left out in triple digit heat
@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.
