comment Wobbly wheel/hub even when I tightened the cones
You might "just" need to true the wheel. But this may be a non-trivial task and you may want to involve an lbs.

comment Diagnose grinding sound from single rear cog
How many miles does this cog have on it? Any isea? You may need to change it. Mostly, with modern bikes, youd just replace the whole cassette. But can you source this for your bike?

comment How popular is the “Sold Secure” certification among reasonable-quality lock makers?
@einpoklum also, Kryptonite offer their own scheme. "Use such-and-such a lock out of our range and we'll guarantee up to a certain value" kind of thing. But I'm not sure what jurisdictions they run that in, nor (importantly) do I know what the small print says.

oh, and if youn can find a shop who stock these, where you can actually go and examine the fabric, there's no substitute.

@DušanRadojević I don't have personal experience of Vermarc but I have heard of them as a reputable brand. Have a look within the brand at the variations on offer, the key things as regards comfort will be the quality of the chamois and the stitching. Unfortunately they're also the things that bump the price up! But chamois expecially. In some brands, the chamois have names, so even if a cyclist buys a different "model" of short, they know that they're getting the same chamois inside.

@Kibbee I agree that it has been discussed before, but although the site has a nominal policy, it is something which keeps coming up again and again, so there is clearly some discomfort among the community. But I'll retract my vote to close and let's see what happens to this question.
