FWIW, a heavier bike will generally be faster downhill.

comment Is the durability of more expensive chains better than cheaper ones?
I use the Park CC2 chain checker and SRAM chains. They start out of the box at %50. I replace them at %75. Unless it rains you really don't need to lube the chain on every ride, when it comes to chain and dirt the less lube the better. Really stop lubing your chain, it's not helping. 300-400 miles of dusty single track is probably about the same as 2000 miles of road use.

comment Choosing a new chain
As the person that wrote the answer about inexpensive/expensive chains, I was only thinking of chains within a specific manufacturer. i.e. Basic $20 SRAM chains vs the $80 ones. There is a difference between brands.

Because something is sold doesn't mean it actually provides any benefit. There's a lot of "snake oil" products available for chains.

comment Why are riders allowed to draft behind cars in Grand Tours?
Porter got a penalty from accepting a wheel from a rider on another team, not a rider on his own team.

comment How do I know my frame can take a compact crank set?
If the frame will fit a 56/39, then there should be no frame clearance problems with a compact crank. My guess is that the FD should work fine
