My main occupation is to debug cruft I write in my free time.

That is, after struggling to stay alive.

Here you can see my beekeeping stackexchange proposal - interested?

comment Can I ride home with a broken spoke?
I'm surprised no one mentioned 3 spoked wheels, so I had to do that :)

comment How much of a difference will I notice going from a Mountain bike to a road bike?
Simply put, and assuming the bicycles are of comparable quality, it will be like going from a tractor to a Ferrari.

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
+1 For daring to say the truth. One shouldn't dare: people won't like it.

What happens if you try again indoors? Do they behave in a similar fashion?

comment How do you shift your weight when leaning on a turn?
I'm trying different solutions, I might also write an answer with my experience later. For now, I want to share with you that brake+turn is pretty nasty. I tried it this morning and it was like one moment the sky, one moment later the earth... :)

comment Topeak Explorer Tubular Rack two versions confusion
Totally approve the above comment. Should you get TA2042-B for your 700c commuter would result in unneeded, excessive clearance between the tyre/mudguard and the rack.

comment How can you speed a road-bike up?
@naught101 I agree with you, it seems to me that once you are at speed, the mass of the wheel is irrelevant. However it is often the case that you have to accelerate with your bicycle, after a sharp turn or a granny crossing. In all those cases, mass is an important factor.
