What kind of terrain you ride? Hard soil? Dusty dirt roads?

comment Burping v/s bleeding hydraulic disc brakes: is it safe?
Yes, I notice that. Shimano mineral oil is not cheap: the 50ml bottle cost $15. For that money I get a Ballantine Finest (750ml), that "refills" me many more times. Oh, the funnel cost another $10. One time expense, but not easy to find in this country.

comment Prescription Cycling Glasses
@Peteh: Maybe I was not precise enough. I ride with contacts + cycling glasses. My prescription glasses are clear (non tinted) polycarbonate and a little bit heavier. They slide down the nose in bad roads. The worst: being smaller than cycling glasses, they don't stop all the flying debris and my eyes suffers. This is me cycling: vimeo.com/80083435.

Are those speeds for road bikes or downhill?

I avoid sites and apps that require creating an account before using it (Strava, MapMyRide). Information wants to be free.

comment Will increased weight make me go downhill faster?
I'm a 100 kgs man, and my bike partner is a 50 kgs woman. When we go down the hills, I just go coasting, while she has to keep pedaling just to keep up (our bikes are similar).

comment What are the pros and cons between an aluminium and carbon frame?
What are your special needs that only can be satisfy with a carbon bike? Going carbon means you have to take extra care for your frame. Factor that into the cost.

comment Do we really need another bike size?
Why every bike requires a different (and expensive) derailler hanger? It's too difficult to have a few standard sizes?
