You have a lot of medical knowledge, Daniel. Out of interest, are you qualified medically?

Well I've heard of them at least, so not that weird. Good plan.

comment What tools are required to replace a spoke?
Hmm, makes me think I should find a source of spokes for my new wheels before I need them. Out of interest, what wheels do you have?

comment Riding in nice office/casual clothes?
Sweating quickly is meant to be a sign that you are fit, as your body is more efficient at keeping itself cool.

comment Riding in nice office/casual clothes?
Disagree about technical clothing smelling less. I have a friend who calls Helly Hansen base layers "smelly-hansen".

comment Is there a specific grease for titanium frames?
Surely it's not just the BB with threading. Does the bike have bottle cages, rack mounts?

comment Evaluate hill gradient
Barometric GPS (such as the Garmin Edge 500 has) can vary wildly as the weather (pressure) changes. It's usually OK relative to the start of a ride, but yesterday it had me at the same point 190m @ 8am and 300m @ 5pm. Usually you can manually set them to a known start point, if you can be bothered.

@DanielRHicks, unless it's carbon. Don't hit carbon with a hammer. :-)
