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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment What should I use, VeloPlugs, Rim Tape, or Rubber Rim Strips in new wheels?
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.

comment Have you built your own components?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. It appears that you're looking to participate in a forum style discussion. Unfortunately, questions of that type are not a good fit for the Stack Exchange format. This question would be a better fit if you were to ask for a specific solution to a specific problem.

comment Are runners or pedestrians allowed to use the bike lane?
@mattnz Terms like "adequate," "in good repair," and "when practicable" are often thrown into laws like this so that the law doesn't require people to use a sidewalk or bike lane that is riddled with potholes, obstructed with debris, or otherwise hazardous. I'm no lawyer, but I think they're left deliberately ambiguous so that the cyclist/pedestrian can decide when it's safe to use the lane/sidewalk, and when it's not.
