comment Why ride a single-speed bike?
An interesting perspective, but you're confusing the issue by mixing in suspension. 90% of your upkeep costs are suspension-specific, no?

Other very personal choices on a bike are handlebar wrap and saddle.

replace "overweight" with "heavy", since that's what matters here.

comment How to avoid turning the spokes while tuning the wheel
In addition to a drop of oil on each nipple, I also tap each a few times with a screwdriver, and wait a while for the oil to soak in. Still, you will always get twisting, so you need to learn the anti-twist technique.

If you've never built a wheel, and try to reassemble one, do not expect it to work well. There is a lot more to wheel building than getting the right parts in the right place.

comment Do I need a new chain after 1300 miles?
Remember: a worn chain will make new cogs wear faster; worn cogs will make a new chain wear faster. Replace them before they get bad. If both are bad, replace both at once.
