comment What's this mark on my chainstay?
Have you ridden in mud? Mud makes tyres wider and sometimes flying particles from the muddy tyres end up doing such marks.

comment How to deal with motorist's road rage (after prevention has failed)
We (in Greece) are still pretty primitive in regards to cycling. Bike lanes are sometimes used by parked cars as well.

comment How to deal with motorist's road rage (after prevention has failed)
It's not clear why you didn't use the bike lane. Was it obstructed by cars parked on it? I'm an avid cyclist but whenever I drive and I see a cyclist riding on the road instead of the bike lane, it pisses me off.

Why weren't you on the bike lane?

comment What do I grease and what do I lubricate?
There is no easy answer on this and unfortunatelly there isn't a single lubrican which will work well on all parts of the bike.

comment Should brake fluid come out of a misaligned disc caliper piston?
In order to check and clean (fix) sticky pistons you need to have nothing between the pistons. That's because you need easy access for cleaning and to perform a couple of full extensions and resets.

@super: you should, but carefully. See step 3.

comment Shifter cable running beneath the bottom bracket without a sheath
Those 2 plastic "rails" are in good shape and they do not play any role in the ghost shifting you describe. You need to look elsewhere.

comment Guidelines for building tape delimited MTB courses
You can build/mark a course any way you like. If you want it to be part of a UCI event though you have to go by the book. In any case, reading the guidelines is always fun.

comment Forearm pain during and after cycling
Also check your levels+shifter position. If they are very vertical or very horizontal then this may be stressing your hands.

comment Punctured fork seal
Your fork is an air fork. On the left leg there is the air spring. Oil will not leak because the left leg only has oil on the lowers. Also, air from the air spring will not leak because the air spring is inside the stanchion, sealed very well from anything outside it (the lowers and the seal you punctured on the upper end of the lowers).
