comment At what age/stage should my child be at before I start using a child seat?
How do the dutch move babies under 9months old? Walking/car? Walking in US is often pretty impractical due to distance and maybe there is more need for more "solutions" on how to strap baby car seat to a bike cart for example

Thanks for thoughtful answer, however, I don't think this machine was part of a complete automated wheel building machine, it was just met to assist in what is called stress relieving by Jobst, also it looked more horizontal rather than vertical in your link above. Not sure, maybe this is it, but I'll leave question open for now in case somebody has couple more links.

comment Why is a proper road bike pedal preferred for road bikes?
This question would probably need to be broken down to subsets, like road racing vs MTB racing etc. As far as commuting and regular riding there is very little research to support cliples pedals, there is surprisingly substantial increase in minor injuries, or even more major hip injuries from falling over with clipped in pedals in city traffic. Look at city riders in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, how many clipless pedals, 0. For a reason, road racing with speedy sprints is a different story of-course, but for everyday riding clipless pedals do not increase speed in a noticeable way.

comment Building from scratch VS buying new
If you ever want to work in or start a bike shop, building your own bike is the best possible training....

comment What should I look for in choosing wheels for a road bike?
Keep in mind that tires affect ride even more than wheels. Also bigger tires take pressure off the wheel making even weaker wheel last longer. For commuting I recommend at least 32-35c width tires.
