comment Why do racing cyclists wobble when furiously pedalling?
To follow up on what Daniel said - being able to use your full body weight in a sprint has its advantages, and that's one reason they shift the bike back and forth under them--to 'throw' their body weight down on alternate legs.

comment Aluminium training rollers - seeking feedback on brands
If the bike jumps off the rollers, you tip over. You DON'T go shooting forward through the wall or into the TV. You just tip over. It can hurt of course, but generally it's just embarrassing...

comment What is a simple mnemonic for remembering the thread direction when removing pedals?
Exactly. You just need to know that the left is 'backwards' and you are set. No mnemonic required!

comment How do I use the plastic backing on patches?
It's a question I've asked myself! I don't know the answer, but I always leave the plastic on, and have had no problems!
