comment Identify: 26in dirt jumper/bmx bike “fetish” brand?
Serial numbers are not as helpful in bicycle identification as you might think. As @Mσᶎ mentions, a picture will help much more. A picture of the bike as a whole, and then close-ups of the head tube, rear drops, etc. would be best.

comment Is it more economical to true a cheap wheel or to buy a better wheelset?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail. Please consider expanding your answer to explain why a new wheelset would serve the OP better than truing his existing wheelset. A short, one-line answer like this is likely to get downvoted, flagged for moderator intervention, and possibly deleted.

comment What is the deal with the new weird Gazelle chain case design?
@RoboKaren In addition to Mladen's comments, it's incredibly difficult to get chain tension correct on a bike with vertical dropouts without some sort of tensioner. It's actually a [fairly common]( way to convert a geared bike to a single speed). Gazelle's approach is just a variation on that idea.

comment Any experience with spokes breaking on new Trek 720 touring bike
The 520 comes with 36 spoke wheels and should be compatible with the 720. In fact, just about any newer 700c disc compatible wheelset will be compatible with your bike. The only thing you'd really have to worry about is the rear hub spacing. Touring bikes can be weird about that sometimes.

comment Are 700x 28 x 32 x 35 tires interchangeable?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail.
