comment Are there brands that sell weather-resistant chains?
I live in the UK and I've recently switched from using chains and blocks till they're worn out, to using the cheapest SRAM chain (about £10) and using a cheap chain measurer to keep an eye on it. As soon as it starts stretching I change it, meaning the (much more expensive) block should last a lot longer.

comment What do you wish someone had told you before your first commute?
+1 for trying to relax. I also commute in central London and really struggle to stay calm. How did you manage to find "a little bubble of calm"?

comment How to keep the pants from getting dirty
Sounds like a mudflap is the key thing here. I was always sceptical of them until I got my Brompton, which comes with one. Makes a huge difference
