comment Am I going to get injured mountain biking if I don't have rear suspension?
@heltonbiker - Thanks! I realized I forgot to add hard tails have less maintenance (here is looking at you loose pivot).

comment What's a good all purpose city commuting winter tire?
Note that no tire will work on black ice. I have studded snow tires, which works great on thick ice or compacted snow that has turned to ice. Black ice is too thin for the studs to effectively bite into. The best you can do is a softer sticker tier, which will give a little bit of traction. Vigilance and a light touch is about all you can do on black ice.

comment how come some cyclists look like they are making a 45 - 60 degree angle with their bodies and I don't?
I would add you need good flexibility in your mid and lower back to properly and comfortably ride in the "flat-back" position.

comment Are there any high power bicycle generators?
@nickg - You didn't read my full argument. It is not that the lights output 800 lumen, it is that all dynamo lights on the market with an output 800 lumen have mirrors designed to shine above the horizon (for trail riding). I had wanted an 800 lumen light as well, but ended up using buying a 350 lumen light because it had the correct mirror. I also have trail lights (750 lumen) and there wasn't much difference in commuting application, because the 350 lumen focuses all the light on the road.

comment How to choose between a race bike like a Madone and a classics bike like a Domane
@Angelo - If you are unsure what class of road bike will work for you, I am uncertain building a bike with custom geometry makes sense.

@ThaRiddla - I still have my carbon bike from my days as a cat 1/2 racer. Occasionally, I think of getting back into racing again, but life is so busy at the moment.

comment Is it possible to estimate road grade while riding?
No, the Edge units self-calibrates. I live in a mountainous area, near the ocean and whenever I drop down to the ocean or head to a known peak it is pretty close to the true elevation. The manual doesn't seem to specify how it calibrates, but the best discussion I have found on it is here.
