comment What symptoms can I expect from two broken teeth on a chainring?
I would be afraid of broken teeth syndrome. Your teeth. I would change it.

comment Speed and distance for a beginner
Your saddle is probably just fine, but your butt (and hole posture on the bicycle) need some training. Rides around one hour sound just fine, and you can increase your pace as your condition improves.

To make it short, none of them is even remotely accurate.

comment Will a white painted bike get rusty when stored outside?
In addition of not sealing it tight, try to put it somewhere in the shade so it does not get boiling hot under the tarp in the summer.

comment Chain slipping in cassette when under load, could a different type of cassette work better?
@AlexisWilke as bicycles got more gears, chains got narrower and had to flex more radially. Also cogs on cassette got thinner, and made of lighter but softer materials. Result is more wear, need for more maintenance and frequent replacements. Simplest and cheapest thing you can do is to buy chain wear indicator and at least replace chain when it is time.

comment What is the max weight a standard bycycle would take?
Yes, but it is easier and cheaper to build strong wheels of smaller diameter. As for BB I am 135 kg, and I find it much easier and cheaper to find lasting BB among external bearing type than cartridge type. And the crank set interface is also much more reliable for heavy man on those.

tight, bicycle seems harder to pedal than before, and slows down faster when cruising.

comment Do new hubs need to be adjusted prior to use
It seems I feel very slight vibration/tremor in handlebars and pedals when pedaling or cruising. Maybe I should just wait until it smooths out.

comment What can I do about a cracked frame?
A fact that he was able to post this question is testimony that steel frames don't fail catastrophically. He came home alive and even the frame is in one piece. This does not mean he should push his luck further.
