    Like others, I have no problems and operate from 5 or so computers + phone. Can you try to clear the cookies for the site in your browser? Maybe there is one corrupted there.

    There is no comparison between Thermos and Klean Kanteen, Contigo etc. People buy a product and it seems an improvement over what they had before. Without having a true comparison, they go ahead...

    Do not reuse a link, if the manufacturer tells you not to. A loosened link becomes a seed of destruction for the rest of the chain. To the eye, a loosened link may look fine. However that link...

    In my experience the Thermos bottles are the best around, allow for one-hand operation, have an insulated cap and are decently made. The diameter is just slightly smaller than of the standard bike...

    I also found Conti Winter very universal, using them even for quite dip snow. When riding on the road and being afraid of an inadvertent slip, even on a compacted snow, I turn to Nokian W240, but...

    I doubt any of the adhesives you mentioned could work. But superglue could work temporarily. I would do it for the sake of experimentation.

    I use two Zefal Dooback mirrors, left and right, mounted reversely, if I remember correctly. You can fold them out of the way for bike folding. No problem with car or suitcase travel.
