comment Securing a bike on a car rack against theft
Product recommendations are off topic for this site, so I have removed that portion of your question.

comment What is a good replacement for a cable end cap?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail. Please consider expanding your answer to explain what these are for anyone who might not be familiar with them. E.g., what their standard use is, where someone might look for them, and what they're called. A short, one-line answer like this is likely to get downvoted, flagged for moderator intervention, and possibly deleted.

comment Is 32km possible to ride with my body condition?
For a person in good health, a 16km ride is perfectly reasonable. Doing so again later in the day could prove difficult if not accustomed to cycling. And given your stated medical conditions, this question would be better asked of a medical professional.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. We prefer answers on this site to be self-contained. That way, the answer is still valid if the link dies. Please summarize what information is contained in the link within the body of your answer. Otherwise, it is likely to be downvoted, flagged, and ultimately deleted.

comment Is it worth buying a RFLKT+ or is the RFLKT good enough?
@andy256 I've edited in links to the products so that it's clearer what the OP is asking about.

comment Is it worth buying a RFLKT+ or is the RFLKT good enough?
@Batman I actually disagree. Historically, we have allowed questions that ask for pro/con comparisons between two products.

comment Inner tube problem
Product recommendations are off topic for this site. However, you can still find a number of questions about puncture resistant tubes and tires if you search the site.

comment Mountain Biker wanting to change to cyclo or road? Which one?
@Nik Giving product recommendations in an answer is fine, as long as it's relevant to the question at hand. Just note that if you are affiliated with the product, you must disclose that affiliation. Asking for product recommendations is off topic because the answers tend to be highly opinionated, often solicit spam, and go out of date quickly.

comment Chain keeps slipping
Does it happen when you're not on the bike, i.e., when the bike is upside-down or in a stand? Can you take a video and post it here?

comment How is Sir Bradley Wiggins 3D printing his titanium handlebars?
That summary didn't really solve the problem of what happens when the link dies. A better summary would give an overview of what the engineer actually says. I've edited one in as an example. Feel free to edit it further.

comment Presta valve won't let air in on a new tube
@DanielRHicks I think you're confused. That part is actually called a "doodad." Or, if you prefer the Latin, a "screw-thingy."

comment Should I stick with my Stolen (brand) BMX or should I build my own bike?
Welcome to Bicycles SE. As it stands, you're question is too opinion based for our Q&A format. A better way to frame your question would be to ask about the relative advantages/disadvantages of the two brands you're looking at, or the advantages/disadvantages between building a bike or using the stock setup. You're welcome to do both, but please ask two separate questions. See our help pages for more information about how the site works.

comment How is Sir Bradley Wiggins 3D printing his titanium handlebars?
I actually cut and pasted the wrong "canned" response to your short answer. This is what I mean to paste: We prefer answers on this site to be self-contained. That way, the answer is still valid if the link dies. Please summarize what information is contained in the link within the body of your answer. Otherwise, it is likely to be downvoted, flagged, and ultimately deleted. I'm not the one who downvoted, but I suspect that's the reason for the downvote.

@Aron It's bad practice for sure, but it should at least function in that combination.

comment Unable to pedal when in high gears
When you say "highest possible gear," do you mean big ring on the front and small ring on the back (like the second picture), or big ring on the front and big ring on the back (like the last two pictures)?
