comment Can disc brakes be considered safe for road group rides?
@DanielRHicks - Agreed I could make the peloton stack with rim breaks in wet conditions if I so choose. It's a matter of always being mindful that others are in close proximity.

comment I want to weld or braze the pedal to the crank arm, but what metals are they?
@MadsSkjern - When installing a pedal you should use grease on the threads, pedal washers and only a moderate amount tension. It should be easy to remove the pedals, even a couple years later after riding under horrible conditions.

@headeronly - your legs are stronger than you think, if the pedal bearings jam, you would be surprised how quickly it will unthread a pedal, even a stubborn pedal.

The Alfine 11 only has extra gears on the high end, the lowest ratios are the same.

comment Why to choose 36 or 32 spokes (or another number)?
You stated that you are changing the rims (but not wheels?). Does this mean you are keeping your hub or did you mean to say you are getting new wheels? If its the former, it is best to match the rim spoke count to the hub spoke count.

@Batman - while better even Shimano QRs are not faultless. I stand by my original answer.

comment Do quick release wheels require certain design in the fork?
@DanielRHicks - I am sorry misapplication of a QR can happen. Calling people "stupid" is inappropriate. If the QR is not tighten it properly the constant vibration of riding off road can cause it to loosen further. The "lawyer lips" can help keep the wheel in the drop outs under such circumstances.

comment Can I use a cyclocross bike for regular road-biking purposes?
I think you meant to say slacker head tube angles. I have a spread sheet of geometries, most CX bikes are about 1 to 2 degrees slacker on the head tube angle.

comment Disc Brakes VS cantilever / V brakes
Your question is too vague, you need to provide more information on your intended use case. Each brake may be optimal under different use situations. I don't think there is a one single 'correct' answer to the question as it is currently asked.
