comment Is pollution a problem in urban cycling?
I wish I didn't have to do this but -1 for giving a misleading answer: among the conclusions from the Zuurbier et al study that you posted concluded: "we calculated that the inhaled air pollution doses were highest for cyclists."

comment What is the stopping force of your average road bike?
it is easier to write out the answer in on the physics site since it supports LaTeX, but you should be prepared to provide more details.

comment How do you know when you need to add more air in the tires?
@neilfein true, except that I usually figure it out before I hit my rims hard enough to damage them. For #4, rolling a clincher tire is a pretty extreme case.
