comment Tools and spares needed to repair a chain on the road
The chain is the original, about 6000km in it, so I have not spare bits. Campag say replace at 8000 and I'm not a strong rider, so will probably go with that. From what I've read, measuring Campag chain stretch is not simple.

Headwinds are tough, but I've never had an infinitely long ride!

comment Headwind when riding in a loop
I'm skeptical about the relevance of "sailing". For any significant power gained you'd have to lean over really hard to counter the sideways force. Land yachts have three wheels and a wide (6ft+) wheel base for good reason!

comment “Creaking” noise from headtube/handlebar
Put your head close to the head tube and try to recreate it. You may be able to locate the sound more precisely. I thought my stem/head tube was causing a noise, but when I listened closely discovered it was the QR skewer/fork interface. When riding these sound the same.
