comment 9 speed Shimano shifter with 7 speed drivetrain
7 speed derailleur may also have more play in the pivots making 9-speed shifting less precise.

comment Cycling training - 220km in 4 weeks
@AndyP - Good point about taking a break to eat. It has been so many years now that I have trained my body to process food while exercising I forgot this can be quite difficult for many.

comment Is it ok to extend/straighten legs fully while pedaling and will it give me maximum power?
@AndyP I am not familiar with the term "anti-correlation," as far as I know there is only positive, negative or no correlation.

@DanielRHicks - even American companies who produce "seats" refer to them as "saddles." If you have an issue with terminology you have a lot of minds to change.

comment Can any crankset be used?
If you are keeping your bottom bracket, you need to be careful as there are two standards for square tapper spindles. They are not completely cross compatible and can result in a damaged the crank if mixed up.

comment Can a beginner cyclist commute ~40km (round trip) to school/work by bike?
@BaratierErebusDuHalm in Vancouver at least that was no deterrent. They would take wheels regardless.

comment Is contact patch area governed by A=W/P
@Criggie I don't think the surface area will necessarily be the same. Imagine a spectrum of casing stiffness from steel to very supple. A perfectly stiff casing will have virtually no defection (regardless of pressure) and infinitely small contact patch.

comment Do higher speed crashes result in less serious injuries.
Unfortunately the answer is premised on anecdotal evidence. For example, I have seen the worst crashes on sunny days... therefore sun must cause bad crashes.
