comment What's the correct term for a 700x23c disc wheel?
@Mac The On One Pompetamine, it comes in black and white (I was specifically looking for white). The Kona P2 was another option, in black only, but it comes in a few variations for wheel size and also has canti versions.

That wheel does look like it could do the trick. I think I might have to ask a new question about the quality I can expect from various price ranges.

@WTHarper so I should just be searching for a 700c (or 29er) wheel and then looking at the specific specs? Is disc wheel or disc hub wheel still the right term?

Yeah, I mentioned about the fork already. It's easier if my front and rear wheels have the same tires than having to buy different widths.

comment What is the proper technique for crossing railroad tracks?
If you have a quick release wheel make sure nobody has tampered with it each time you ride. I had someone do that to my bike in high school and had the front wheel come off crossing the tracks.

comment What kind of pump do I need for this valve?
In this case, I'd definitely need an adapter. I opened the valve, tried pushing it in again and ended up deflating the tire entirely.

comment Are Merrell Barefoot shoes suitable for bike touring?
And that is not a problem either. No foot pain, no numbness, no bruising. If you're experiencing that, it's your feet, not that flexible soled shoes are unsuitable.

comment Unconventional, pretty bicycle helmets
I wouldn't worry about hot and humid. If you're sweating a lot, wear a headband to keep it out of your eyes, and your bike probably has an attachment for a water bottle. Use it. The less ventilation, the more safe it is if you get in a crash. I only go for the helmets that BMX riders and downhill racers wear. I got my girlfriend a colourful one.

comment Onguard U-lock jammed
I've read about this problem in reviews of OnGuard locks on Amazon, so it's likely a design flaw with rust as a possible culprit. I haven't read about any solutions to it, beyond renting a power grinder to cut the lock off so you can buy a better one next time. That was one of the reasons I chose not to buy OnGuard, the other reason is one key fron an OnGuard lock fits multiple locks, which would allow a bike thief to walk around with a large key ring trying several keys until one of them works (the cheaper Kryptonite locks also have this problem).
