comment Is it good practice to wave following cars through when safe?
Are you referring to double yellow lines on the road? If so, what do they mean? This will depend on where in the world you are.

comment Adding disc brake to a bike without rear disc brake mounts
There are a few different types of adapters, though they are now getting harder to find. The A2Z DM-UNI is another option, about £25. wiggle.co.uk/a2z-universal-disc-mount It will depend on the dropouts as to whether it fits.

comment Why won't tires go on my Velocity A23 rims?
Schwalbe Marathon tyres can be very tough to fit on many different rims, probably because the thick puncture proof layer. It does depend on what size tyre and what size rim. But once its fitted, it shouldn't need removing any time soon.
