comment Reverse Gear in Bicycles
As it stands, this answers sounds a bit speculative. Please consider expanding the answer to explain how one could do something like this. Specifically, you could describe the locking mechanism you have in mind in more detail. If you do not expand this answer, it is likely to be downvoted, flagged for moderator intervention, and possibly deleted.

comment Bike Washing Steps to know
@frisbee I don't own a car, but I get your point. I meant prior to washing. I'd actually rinse it the same way I washed it, but without the soap. I'd also hand dry, but that's not as important.

comment Bike Washing Steps to know
There's really no reason to use a hose. A bucket full of soapy water and a sponge will get the bike plenty wet where you want it wet and not where you don't.

comment Can your rims wear down from too much braking?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. As it stands, it sounds like you are unsure that this failure is due to rim wear. Since you are unsure, please update your post to say what leads you to that conclusion. It would also be helpful if you mentioned the type of rim and the type of brake pads, since the OP specifically asks about that.
