comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of turbo trainers and rollers?
@danethesane also try riding with no hands, at a high cadence, at a low cadence (20 rpm with high resistance)then take a jacket on and off, then juggle. Ride with your eyes closed. Bike handling will improve.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of turbo trainers and rollers?
@Tyler thanks for pointing out that explanation of Souplesse in a cycling context. But given the definition, and extensive experience training on rollers, I would argue that the OP incorrectly understates the benefits of riding rollers, or the fact that it takes specific focus to know that rollers promote good, smooth form, and the ability to hold a straight line under various riding situations.

comment Do skilled cyclists really “use the front brake alone probably 95% of the time”?
your fixed-gear bike might not have a brake, but you can still "brake" with it. When I ride a fixed gear, the majority of my braking is done through exerting pressure backward on the pedal.

comment What is the proper etiquette for overtaking a horse?
@neil yes, as most of the answers point out, it can be very dangerous, espercially for the horse rider, if the horse is spooked by a bike.

comment How do I know when to replace my bottom bracket?
"noise from bottom bracket" can also mean loose chainring bolts or a broken frame, and is most often the former.
