comment Rear hub for randonneuring - any “classic” model?
@Aushiker I'd wait until I saw the price, but I would expect it to be high. I couldn't even tell you what derailleur hubs I've used, but one generic one went well over 50,000km before it finally gave out. My special hubs are all Rohloffs :)

comment Solid rubber bicycle tires
Specifically Neil Fein's answer. FWIW where I worked we refused to fit them after the first time - they're a huge PITA to fit, and people balk at $100+ per wheel labour costs.

comment What's the lowest safe cadence on a climb?
Is that your lowest available gear? I suspect the reason for lack of keen pain is that at that power level the forces on your knees are not high enough to cause immediate problems.

comment Shimano shoe fitter
I'm on the fence about this question, it's very shopping oriented and quite specific, but the underlying "how do different manufacturer's shoe sizes compare" is a real one.

comment Shimano shoe fitter
Answers online seem to be mixed. MTB Forum and google search I've always either bought shoes to match what I have, or tried them on. Specifically because of fears like yours. FWIW MTBForum suggests Shimano are on the loose side, at least for MTB shoes.

comment Could you make a bike frame out of 24kt gold?
You'd have to oversize everything because of the low strength, and use plain bearings because making ball bearings out of gold wouldn't work at all. It's actually a challenging question because "make it bigger" doesn't work - doubling a linear dimension squares the strength but cubes the weight. So no, I think this answer is wrong.
