yes he's right. I'm surprised he didn't also tell you that thieves often carry wrenches.

comment Single-speed vs Multi-speed bike purchase
You purely need to look at the gradients you are riding. If a single gear will be enough to carry you up - and down - all the hills you will ride, then a single speed bike is viable.

comment What percent of crashes are due to bicycle failure?
You might imagine that manufacturers keep data on under-warranty failures, but that is some way removed from what you're asking, and I can't imagine them ever making that information public

comment Is there a preferred frame size calculator?
Any calculator will only ever give you an approximation, you need to try the bike to know for sure.

If it's not being made any more, you should ask yourself why.

comment suggestions of affordable clothes for beginner rides?
are these clothes for summer/winter? for wet/dry? do you need clother that prevent you from overheating? or that offer some protection against the environment you're riding in? I think you need to give us some more information before you'll get a decent answer. And where are you? In the UK, a couple of supermarkets offer clother which are generally considered to be great value, but again it depends on what type of clothes you want, also they only offer them a couple of times a year.

comment Is it more economical to true a cheap wheel or to buy a better wheelset?
For future reference, you might find the Help topic How do I write a good answer useful. Also note that the site allows you to edit improvements into your answer, you don't need to resort to adding comments.

As it stands I think this answer has very limited value. Expressing your opinion is one thing, but it is useful if you back that opinion up with reason and fact.

I'd go along with Daniel, try it and see how you get on. Whatever reviews you're read, don't expect a lot from a $100 wheelset, it is at the low end of the market and there will be reasons for that.

comment Is it OK for a child's bike to have a radially-laced rear wheel?
Its probably going to depend on the child's weight, and what they do with the bike.

comment How far should I be able to bike?
Don't think anyone so far has mentioned nutrition, As you ride further and longer, make sure you gen up on this. There's nothing to stop you riding all day, easily over 80 miles, provided you keep yourself topped up.
