There’s an interesting idea, albeit with greater expense.

comment Daily Adjusted Seatpost for Trainer Bike
@Criggie Hi, yes. it works great. I got an “alloy” seat post with “steel head” according to the product page. While it is being gouged a little bit by the tube every time we move it, i think it should last another year at least. M-Wave is the manufacturer. It was under 10 bucks at the time from the evil jungle that I know is frowned upon by all serious cyclists. For most of the last 8 months we haven’t been using it since we moved, and unfortunately had to take it down due to major space loss. I’m hoping to get it set up again at our next place.

Yeah, it came with a QR clamp, or else it'd really be pain.

comment Is there a recycling program that accepts unrepairable inner tubes?
Correct, most REIs appear to participate in a a recycling program, but apparently they just send the tubes to Alchemy Goods (see ZenBikes answer) and get a little credit ($) themselves I think.

They no longer give store credit for turning your tubes in. I'll never be able to afford their awesome stuff without the help. Oh well… the video is very cool and makes me want to be a yuppie! So I guess I'll just go to my local REI and they'll get sent to AG anyway. I still get to feel good about helping keep the planet clean, even though someone else is profiting off me…

comment Is it better to have a slightly big or slightly small bike?
In a literary or poetic sense it could mean 'more difficult than preconceived,' as in 'the road to Valhalla was gnarly for the reluctant Valkyrie' or 'I had a gnarly time at the station'. In this way I just thought wonea meant 'tricky,' as in 'more difficult to ride than you think before getting on,' which easily translates to a personally difficult time with the spirit of the bicycle throwing you off in vengeful spite for straining its steel by being larger than it feels its rider should be… I thought it was totally obvious, and even if that's not what he meant, it's still 'right', teehee!

comment Protocol for downhill cyclist overtaking a car?
In California of the United States, if 5 vehicles are following close behind you on a windy mountain road (i.e. where passing is not safe/easy, and people vary their speed much more than other places) you are required to pull over and let them pass by law.

comment Looking for alternate pants with 'snaps' around calf and/or shin area
@jimirings that's essentially what i'm talking about actually, the zion pants i have are more designed to roll (I suppose you could do your best to 'fold' but that would take some time due to the elasticity of the fabric, and have almost no gain), then get stuck into place than 'fold up flat'. So basically, I want something (integrated) to keep them there once rolled. Also, that's funny, I remember that trend...

comment Sizing guide for road bikes vs mountain bikes
I agree. When choosing a MTB I was consistently given one a size too big, based on 'male comfort' on the standover. The problem ended up being that I was actually reaching too far forward and getting lower back pain, not that I was 'injuring' myself at stoplights.

Will the 60% water be safe (not a rust hazard) for all metals/coatings?

Aqua Net is also good for spud launchers, in case you have one mounted on your bike, now it can have two functions.
