comment How to remove broken bolt in Chain Tug?
For those missing more context, it looks like @hhh has a Genetic chain tensioner, which is a semi- (total?) clone of the On-One chaintug.

comment Brompton front light recommendations?
Also note that we don't really go shopping on Bicycles.SE. So hopefully compatibility advice is helpful enough.

comment What should I look for in a mountain bike for doing BMX-style balancing tricks?
Do you want to use the bike for anything other than trick riding? At the extreme end you start getting into bicycles specialized for that, at the expense of true off-road or distance riding.

comment How do I measure a fork for suitability?
That fork will fit your wheel, might not fit your bike, and I can't say how it'll affect handling - is that the exact same fork as you measured on the other bike?

comment Is it worth switching from regular “rim brakes” to the new disk brakes?
This question answers most of your question: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/4423/… - the only difference is whether your Haro frame and fork have disc tabs or not.

comment Why would a bike feature a “carbon wrapped aluminum frame”?
You're certainly right that the carbon wrap is just to make this cheap bicycle look fancier than it is. You're not right that aluminum is always stiff and brittle; old ALAN aluminum frames are quite flexy. For metal frames, tubing thickness and diameter play a significant role in how the frame behaves.

comment Chainline on a trek 660 fixie conversion
@apatz87 It's unlikely that the original spacing on that frame was 120mm; the Trek 660 was introduced in 1984 after Trek had switched most frames to 126mm spacing. If it's been respaced you should verify that the dropouts are aligned and properly centered, as that will affect your chainline as well.
