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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Frame differences between 700c and 29er?
You may have a hard time mounting 2" tires on a frame that's designed for 700c tires. They're often not designed with enough clearance for a tire that large.

comment Why has my ride changed?
Even if you can't change tires and adjust your tire pressure yourself, you should be able to specify your preferred pressure to the shop. Vittoria has a pretty good calculator. Also note that any calculator's suggestions are just that: suggestions. Look at it as a starting point and adjust your tire pressure to be higher or lower based on your preferences and riding conditions.

comment What are the most important accessories for a new biker to get?
This question is too broad and opinion-based for the Stack Exchange format. You'll notice that the similar question that you linked to has been locked and shows the text "it is not considered a good, on-topic question for this site." However, this would be a great discussion for chat.

comment Don't integrated headsets wear out, ruining the frame?
It sounds like you're saying that the cups are removable as well as the bearings. If so, could you provide references? Everything I've seen seems to indicate otherwise.

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 Building a city/trail bike with a CX frame, what should I consider?
@Blam You have edited this post seven times and I have seen similar activity on other posts by you. Please limit your edits. Each edit of a post bumps it to the top of the list of active questions. Repeatedly editing a post takes attention away from other questions.
