comment Are all ready-made wheels sold “cassette compatible” only?
I think you should localize your question because here where I live it's no problem to find ready made freewheel wheel (actually, I have problems finding cassette wheel for a similar price).

comment How do I determine my wheel size
TL;DR: 700C = 28" = 29" = 622mm. 26" and 27" tires are not compatible with above.

comment Why such a tiny difference in crankarm length?
Not that it affects the question much, but you shouldn't forget that there are two crankarms, so that the actual difference is 2x the difference of a single crankarm - 2cm, not 1cm.

comment How can I make my bike (and myself) visible at night?
Just a minor advice: put your reflective tape on some of the moving parts (rims, spokes or cranks), as the motion improves visibility drastically.

comment Deepening the front fork dropout
@jm2: Well, I am aware that, theoretically speaking, messing with a fork can result in a failure. However, you can't tell that for sure before assessing the particular case, right? As for the symmetry issue, that's valid concern at any case.

comment What size cone wrench am I likely to need for a Trek 1.5 2011 Compact rear hub?
Try to find one of these: it has 4 sizes (IIRC, 14, 15, 16 and 17mm) on a single wrench: totalbike.rs/pribor/alati/univerzalni-alat-za-konuse

comment What could cause a tyre to deform in this way?
Is the rim deformed too? What happens when you deflate the tire, does the deformation persists?

comment When to tune/replace brake cables for optimum tension
Your brake arms are not symmetrical for some reason. Either pads are not evenly worn out, or the spring tension is not equal. I'd check that first, before tightening and/or replacing the cable.

Do you have the pic of the spindle, I'm a bit curious how it looks and whether it's a standard one?

comment Difference between brake pads on road and MTBs
I meant more in the context of the different size of contact area: how it affects the braking strength, for example.

comment How can I prevent cars from passing me too closely?
First, and most important, by "claiming the lane" you are not blocking traffic. You are merely slowing it down. Also, the OP asked about preventing dangerous overtaking. Riding in the middle of the lane is one of the ways to do this: if there's no space to safely overtake, by claiming the lane you are making the drivers behind aware of that. Of course, when you see that they can safely overtake, you move to the right to allow them to.

@hagubear: What prevents the driver overtaking him politely if he is riding in the lane centre?

Are you sure that the cable is properly inserted into the shifter?
