comment Badly rusted suspension fork
@Kaz Suspension can be good, yes. But cheap suspension is worse than a rigid fork. By the way rigid for being antediluvial, ever seen suspension in road bikes?

comment Why are bike frames getting so much bigger
You are comparing a touring bike to a road bike and wonder that it's beefier?

The optimal cadence is what you feel comfortable with the most.

comment Badly rusted suspension fork
That it goes up and down does not mean it serves any purpose besides going up and down. Below-low-end suspension (I mean rust, common, even low end forks don't rust) only eats up energy that you otherwise could have put into forward motion, destroys your back and look cool. I'd go for a rigid fork, too.

comment Buying a bicycle
shopping recommendations are off topic anyway, as they are never in any way constructive and wont help future visitors.

comment Helmet to reduce sweating
In the way it is asked at the moment it clearly is a shopping request and thus off topic. It might become a nice question though with an appropriate edit.

comment Is it possible to repair a dent on an aluminium frame?
Repairing and a new paint job would probably as expensive as a new frame (depending on the material of course, but it's Aluminium here, which is not easy to weld).

comment Velodrome atmospheric conditions
Of course, I confused humidity and aridity.

comment Velodrome atmospheric conditions
Would be nice to know what very warm and humid means in numbers. My first guess would be, that it is around 25°C and the humidity aids the cooling because sweat can evaporate easier. Another thought is that it is for preventing the material the track is made of from "working" because of the changes in temperature and humidity. If this claim is true at all…

comment Brakes, rims or seatpole
The question is far too broad to receive a good answer and is a basically shopping recommendation which are off topic on most stack exchange sites.

comment What is the 3 foot law and which states have it?
Just checked wikipedia, in Germany the "Sicherheitsabstand" (safety distance) is 1.5m (5 feet) to bikes and motorbikes. But only 1m to cars.

comment What is the 3 foot law and which states have it?
Germany has something like this, too. I am not sure if it is a recommendation or a law, but most people abide it anyway.
