comment How can one prevent a tube from sticking to the inside of a tire?
Because a clean bike is a happy bike. Also, because of this.

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@zenbike - I didn't appreciate that it was rider-specific; I see your point now. Perhaps there's a way to edit so it's useful to OP but less specific?

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@zenbike If this were some oddball brand of saddle I'd agree with you. But Brooks saddles are incredibly common. Respectfully, I think this would be generally useful. (Whether the question would be answered is another question.)

comment Pressure mapping a Brooks saddle
@zenbike I disagree; I think answers to this question would be useful to many cyclists who use Brooks saddles. I'm voting to repoen, but would be happy to discuss.

comment Can i fit a 6 speed wheel onto a 5 speed bike?
It may also be necessary to get a new derailer (if the bike uses one) and, if the shifters are indexed, new shifters. At the very least adjustments will be needed to both of these items.

comment Merida Matts TFS 600 original chain lube
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this question can be answered by looking at the product specs. We're a Q&A site, not product tech support.

comment Is bike fit really needed?
4. Research bike fit yourself and adjust your bike accordingly. It won't be as good as a pro fitting, but it's definitely better than nothing.

comment Looking for advice on upgrading
This question is kinda vague as it is now. Can you clarify what you want from the bike? More speed? Better hill climbing?

comment What is the best method to teach a young child to ride?
You can also remove the pedals from a regular bike and lower the saddle a bit to get more or less the same effect.

comment Carrying Pizza on a Bicycle
This is perfect if you want to eat a pizza all scrunched up on one side of the box while you wait for the ambulance because your front brakes jammed.

comment Need a method to wrap H-bars with handlebar tape
Trying to make a diagram. (I added numbers to make it easy to sync up.) Can someone tell me what steps 5, 7, and 8 are and I'll add them? (We can embed the diagram in the answer when it's done.) So far it seems like a good method, but if I follow this, parts of the barends would be triple-wrapped. Maybe I'm not getting this?
