comment Mystery grease source - Alfine 11, Gates Belt drive, Shimano bottom bracket
For slipping check the shifter cable tension as well as look for housing that may be caught/pulled out of place. My Alfine deteriorated fairly rapidly after 2 years, hope you have better luck!

comment What is the advice for new cyclists?
As you successfully finished a 200 and 300 km event without any notable concerns (at least not specified). It is unclear from the question the type of advice you seek/need or if you need any. For example, where you unbearably uncomfortable during the event? Did you have problems managing food and water? What are your long term goals (e.g., 600 km, 1200 km)? Do you have any concerns for meeting these goals? Without any guidance this question is overly broad, unanswerable, and is more suited to a Ranonneuring forum which encourages general discussions.

comment Light for Tubus rear rack
@JohnZwinck - It is a shame dynamos haven't taken of in North America. Won't commute without one!

comment Light for Tubus rear rack
@Blam - Both linked lights require a dynamo to power the light. The Busch & Müller 4DToplight Senso Multi can be powered by batteries or a dynamo source. See peterwhitecycles.com/taillights.asp

@BenjaminMakoHill - I have updated the answer. I probably should have edited the question when I saw the mistake, thanks for contributing!

comment Coping with crash fear?
Great answer... I laughed at riding at the back of a crit to "avoid" risk. So many do it, the irony is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

Optimal cadence (in terms of metabolic efficiency) is a bit of a myth. There is a huge capacity adaption by skeletal muscles. See McDaniel, J., Durstine, J. L., & Hand, G. A. (2002). Determinants of metabolic cost during submaximal cycling. Journal of Applied Physiology 93:823-828.
