comment How often should one service headset bearings?
+1 on the never at home. Something that you get your LBS to do for you every few years if needed as the tooling to remove the original without damage and then fit the new one is prohibitive for most. Even MTB ones only need it not very often.

comment Ideas for consistently popping tubes
what do you define as proper pressure ? And is the bike hanging in a sunny place? It's definitely possible for sun on a overinflated black tyre to blow out the tube if it's at the top of its pressure range. It also does sound like a bad batch of tubes too. The only problem is to convince the LBS it is not a "just riding along" story

comment Suggested maintenance for rear shock between service intervals?
Nice video. I particularly like the tips about reassembling back on the bike and dropping a splash of grease in prior to screwing the can back on.

Got to vote for single handed setup for simplicity. Have a friend with one arm + prosthetic who uses a single handed setup for MTB

comment Hayes Sole Disk Brake sudden loss of pressure.
No reservoirs its a sealed circuit of Master to Slave. Its the odd thing. I can't find any fluid leakage but I haven't pulled the pads out yet to see if the pistons have blown seals.
