comment What are the most effective exercises to improve stamina and speed on my cycle to/from work?
Good answer, definitely get out more often, even in rain/snow/wind, but I'd caution against riding when there's ice on the road. Unless you have studded tyres or a trike, then an accident is likely and could stop you cycling for some time.

Good point that all metallic bike frames are alloys and I guess even carbon has resin involved, not that you'd call that an alloy.

comment Could you make a bike frame out of 24kt gold?
Good find and a "bargain" at "only" $1M ;), but is overlaid (presumably over steel). Probably due to the many practical problems discussed below.

Nice answer, but did you mean: "However, uglifying your bike isn't as effective against common thieves as it is against these planned attacks" or the reverse?
