comment Could I be pumping up my tyres the wrong way?
I found this morning that the barrel on my track pump had become slightly unscrewed. This meant that I was using more strokes than usual to get to the desired pressure, and I couldn't quite get there.

comment Can a (relative) beginner adjust spacing on a 501 cromo road frame?
I would look for wheels with 130mm hubs - these are still quite readily available.

comment Which parameters should I track with bicycle computer so I can analyze changes in my riding?
I've often wanted an air speed sensor as well as the road speed. I'm not sure how feasible it is though.

comment Why are bicycles considered vehicles and not “walking aid”?
@Unsliced that was one of the examples used. If you are walking then you are a pedestrian. If you are scooting with one foot on the pedel then you are riding.

comment Why are bicycles considered vehicles and not “walking aid”?
I was reading in the CTC Cycle magazine that there is case law that covers when you are riding a bicycle and when you are a pedestrian. In summary if you have at least one foot on a pedal you are riding.
