Rewrite.

comment Chain skipping on new freewheel and chain setup - What went wrong?
The chain could be too short for the amount of tension in the upper pivot. A tight chain will pull harder against the guide pulley, pulling it farther away from the sprocket, hiding misalignment issues. A looser chain is "tucked in" better by the guide pulley.

comment Broken glass on the bicycle path, what to do?
The obvious answer is: don't use your racing bike in this terrain; use your mountain bike.

comment Suspension setting for slippy and steep uphill
@cherouvim How about if I'm sitting on a bike in one place, not moving anywhere. Am I getting more friction between ground and wheel, because the bike has suspension?

comment Suspension setting for slippy and steep uphill
@cherouvim Suspension helps traction by ensuring compliance of the unsprung mass (wheel and anything that moves with it) with the surface. That doesn't seem to be very relevant when you're climbing a steep hill. The frequency of movement is so low that the entire mass can easily comply to the surface. Generalities like "suspension affects traction" are only useful when we can recognize when they are relevant.

comment Can I put a road bike tyre on a mountain bike?
I recommend discovering the true reason why the bike is difficult to ride. For starters, try inflating the tires you have now to 60-65 psi.

comment Assembly of New Bike
This is not an effective question; why don't you wait until the thing arrives and then ask about some specific problem you run into (if any)?

comment Do merino wool base layers need to be skin tight?
Give wool a hot wash and pop it in the dryer: it will be skin tight if it wasn't before. :)
