comment Picking spare inner tube size
I would strongly doubt that the fabrication tolerances for bicycle inner tubes are better than 2.5%. That would mean that these sizes are not only interchangeable but effectively the same.

comment How can I tell if a bike is too big for me?
Thanks for your kind words! I should probably mention that some knowledgeable people consider the horizontal saddle position as secondary. They often say that they don't mind where they sit horizontally (within some margins). They position the handlebars to the bottom bracket so that a good overall balance is achieved when pedaling out of the saddle. The saddle is then positioned relative to the handlebars, so that it fits the rider's torso and arm lengths. I ride mostly sitting, and do feel a difference, so I personally disagree with them.
