I had planned on hanging from a string from my seat post, but if it's going to be useless for more than a small quantity if water I guess that's not a great solution.

comment Does a typical floor pump have an integrated one-way valve?
Sorry, I meant it is not one-way in the way that the question implied. It's not a case of simply increasing the PSI outside the valve until air flows into the tube, the valve must be opened and then air is free to flow in either direction.

The valve on your bike tyre is not one-way. Your pump must necessarily have a built-in one-way valve.

comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
My bike is every bit as quiet as a fixed-gear bike while I'm pedaling. It's only more noisy than a fixed-gear while I'm coasting, which I think is a pretty fair trade.

comment I wish to get fit, therefore should I have a heavy bike?
@JayBazuzi I am living, breathing proof that "can't keep it off part" simply is not true. I'm 70 pounds lighter than I was in college. Losing the weight had virtually nothing to do with exercise and everything to do with diet though.

comment Clip-on to temporarily convert Look pedal to stand-on style?
I find the problem with this is (depending on how high you have your tension set) it can be very hard to twist the "pedal" out of the clip. When you twist your foot free, the entire weight of your leg is behind it. Twisting the platform out of the clip with out a large handle to grab onto might be difficult.

comment Is there any reason to keep original drive-train components together until they can all be replaced?
Bought a new chain and tried it - no issues so far, and no skipping even under extreme load.

Sound advice. Will pick up a new chain next week, thanks.

The bike is about 4 months old, and has been getting between 150 and 200km/week of usage. He did use a gauge, and told me the chain had much more wear than it should for a bike only ~4 months old. I'm trying to drag this out of memory, but the thing read "twice" what it should, give or take. They chalked it up to insufficient cleaning/oiling of the chain. When I asked if the chain should just be replaced, he told me the above about not mixing and matching old/new components in the drive train.
