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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

comment Reversing Drop Bars
The difference is that this dodges the problem of a single hand position, as well as the potential problems created by the reverse curvature in some drops, i.e., awkward hand positioning and difficulty mounting brakes. The answer is valid, the image is just a bad example.

Please consider expanding your answer with the reasoning behind why you would return it and/or what might qualify as too cheap to worry about.

comment Is it good practice to wave following cars through when safe?
I'm not sure that this is quite the same. Flashing headlights can have many meanings: turn your lights on, turn your brights off, go ahead even though it's not your turn, my wife is about to have a baby so get the hell out of my way, etc. Waving someone through is pretty unambiguous.

comment Is there a way to merge tracks within a GPX file?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. I think that your #3 should really be a whole separate question. It would be better if you edited it out of this question and then asked it as a new question.

comment Is it safe to go over roots at high speed on a cross-country bicyle?
From what I can tell, the Cube AIM is actually an entry-level MTB. Entry-level bikes are typically the same frame as more expensive versions of the same bike, but with lower quality parts. It looks like the fork on that bike is one of the places where they saved a lot of money. I didn't really dig too deeply, but that fork may not be designed for the type of riding that you're describing.
