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

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. I think if you edit your question to focus on the issue of how much bike technologies change over time, you'll get better responses. You'll also notice a lot of similar questions that may help you out on the right side of this page. There was even a very similar question asked recently (possibly even a duplicate), but I can't find it at the moment.

comment Bike Rack from Apartment's Underground Carpark Removed - Is building management liable?
@mattnz I raised a similar objection to another question once before. The consensus at the time was that bike thefts are a unique type of question and are on topic. In fact, much of the logic in that Meta thread applies to this question more than the one I initially asked about. However, I personally wouldn't object to revisiting the issue of legal questions in Meta.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. We typically ask that answers have more detail. Please consider adding support behind your reasoning, i.e., why the OP need not worry.

comment How to move a bicycle by bicycle
I've done this many times with a variety of bikes. I find that the easiest is to ride a fixie and push/pull a second bike. This way you don't have to worry about using your hands for the brakes. Also, if you lift the front tire of the bike you're push/pulling off the ground, the whole thing is easier to steer. The catch is that your arm gets tired.

A similar question was asked and closed on this site once before. The previous question had a few answers though. See it for inspiration.

@Batman and GriffinEvo The off-topic/shopping closure specifically mentions service recommendations as part of the closure criteria. As such, I've closed this question.
