comment Can I zero the gauge on my floor pump
Also shown in the photo is the normal "stop" for the indicator hand at the zero position. That way, when there's zero pressure, the indicator rests against the stop. Do you re-zero the gauge so that the indicator is just barely touching the stop?

comment What happened to pumps?
Can you fix the title to be more explicit about what you're asking about pumps? Maybe something like: "Are screw on pump fittings available?" The title presently seems a bit like a rant. Thanks.

comment Shift lever and boss (mount point) compatibility matrix
@FredtheMagicWonderDog, That's a help, for sure. Do you happen to know about between manufacturer compatibility? That would be alright if all types in the requested matrix are simply categorized by manufacturer.

comment Insurance for carless cyclist in California
Can you clarify what kind of insurance you are asking about? Is it for your occasional driving of a rental car, for example? Or for insurance for when you might cause damage caused by you when bicycling? The question and update are ambiguous, yet either would be applicable and important to people who don't own a car.

comment Different kinds of Handlebars
These remind me of a road "drop" style handlebar that took this shape natively. It was called Scott Drop-in handlebars. Basically, they are road bars with a lower horizontal grip area, parallel to the top.

revised Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
Added text to clarify question. Added the "adjustment" tag.

comment Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
I suspect that the long rails on the originally posted triathlon bike's saddle is to compensate for the only-vertically-adjustable height. If the adjustment axis was at an angle, then long saddle fore/aft adjustment would not be as necessary.

comment Why do some triathlon seatposts go straight up and down instead of at an angle?
My interest is in the angle of the adjustment axis. I realize that the resulting geometric angle made by bottom bracket to saddle to handlebars is different for Triathlon / TT bikes. Good point about the overall geometric angle though, thank you!

@R.Chung, I will take a look a the link(s) and accept an answer or summarize my own findings. Thanks for the pointers!
