I wonder if it would be helpful to (other) readers to have information on the credentials of those posting advice on here?
I read much of what gets posted, but I'd be interested to know a few things...
Do we have any pro' racers on here? Ex pro's? Experienced amateurs? Novices? Coaches? Journalists? Commissaires? People in the bike industry? That kind of thing - all useful to establish the value of experience, perhaps?
What experience do people have? How long have they/you been riding/racing/touring/building/repairing/selling bikes?
I'm just a wee bit sceptical at times, since much of the advice seems to be regurgitated 'stuff I read on Gooooooogle/in a magazine', or whatever.
I'm in favour of first-hand, real life experience, rather than what you mate's mate told you down the pub last week.
Feel free to set out your stalls.
