comment Why am I slow on flat surfaces?
Note when doing intervals that the lactate threshold will typically feel like a burning sensation (due to some of the related metabolic processes as your muscles work anaerobically.) So increase speed until it burns, keep a slight burn for a minute or two, then slow down for a few minutes.

comment Can I ride faster with a bike jersey?
@Angelo: Since air resistance increases as a square, that means that at a typical commuter pace of 11mph you could expect maybe 1 or 2 seconds shaved off of the same 22 mile distance.

comment Where can I find a bulb for my vintage 70's generator light?
You really need to give us more to work with. I suggest multiple pictures. The light; any identifying features of the light; the spot the bulb fits into; and the bulb, especially the bit of the bulb that fits into the light.

comment Frame sizing: “medium” vs. inches vs. centimeters
@mark: The XS/S/M/L/XL type measurements on the charts linked in the question seem about right, with the huge caveats that it varies with manufacturer and type of bike, and that it's a single measurement when there's several on the bike that matter.

comment Is there an optimal postion for SPD cleats?
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment How much friction arise from the tires?
@David: there are 4 types of friction involved, which do you mean? (1) static friction (how well tires hold to the road normall), (2) dynamic friction (how well they stop while skidding), (3) rolling resistance (how much the tire resists being rolled) and (4) air resistance (how much the tire contributes).
