comment Expanding the range of capabilities of a gravel bike
'Gravel Grinders' are just glorified, marked up cross bikes. Get a cross bike and you'll be able to take it most anywhere.

Did you try calling the manufacturer?

comment Why are there BMX off road races
Why do a lot of unintuitive sports exist? Because enough people thought it was a fun/good idea.

comment How does pedaling power transfer to the bearings in Hollowtech II bottom bracket?
I don't know how you got yourself into this mess, but you are way-over-thinking this. The entire purpose of a bottom bracket is to minimize any and all friction and let the crank spin freely.

comment how much of a difference does bike weight make when trying to maximize the bike's top speed?
Quality is not synonymous with weight or top speed. A counterfeit Chinese carbon frame may be faster than a well made steel frame and built up to be a rugged commuter with wide puncture resistant tires and stainless steel fenders. You're probably going to pay more for lighter components, but that's not a guarantee of quality, not on its own.

There's a good chance your local mechanic will be better equipped to unstuck it.

You probably shouldn't store anything near a heater.

comment Is it safe to mount fender stays and disc brakes on the same bolt?
head over to western bike works or bike gallery or REI and find some Planet Bike fenders that attach via rubbers straps or clips, etc, one of the local bike shops around here ( not the one that sold you those ) will be able to help.

Yeah, don't do that, and maybe stay away from the shop that tried to tell you that you could.

comment The bike Weight and Performance gain for Lightweight riders?
That saying is intended to remind clydesdales like myself that watching your diet and shedding a pound off your waist is a more practical approach to increasing speed than say, spending $200 on a carbon handlebar to shed 40 grams off of the aluminum one that came with the bike. It in no way applies to your 48kg girlfriend on a mountain bike.

comment Cleaning Carbon Black off a Bicycle
I feel like there's something else going on here or the black paste you're fighting isn't brake dust. I've never been unable to remove brake dust with elbow grease.

I recommend returning it while you still can, you're only going to have more problems with any walmart bike.

comment Quick Release on Fixed Gear Bike
Most likely, yes. You may have to seek out the more experienced employee, I'd start with the mechanics, in order to find someone that has experience with identifying steel threads, steel teeth, etc. You always run the risk of running into an employee that doesn't have much experience. Worst case scenario they lie and sell you a quick release that isn't what you're asking for. In which case, post photos of it here asking for help identifying the materials. You get the idea.

comment Can I replace my bicycle's dynamo with batteries?
Maybe worry a little bit, just out of an abundance of caution.
