    How long does that take, how much do you earn per hour, how much does a new chain last, and, finally, how much more mileage does all this fuss grant you?

    I just wipe chain with an old rag, lube...

    Fully synthetic motor oil (winter one e.g. 0w30) is good enough for winter even without any mixing with mineral spirits. The most expensive one is 10 euros per whole litre. Lifetime supply. :)...

    My rear goes in around 6000 km. Front is good for another 3-4 thousand. It is half worn. I put the half worn tyre at the back, to wear it out completely, and put a new tyre up front. That way I...

    Well explained.

    Rear tyre carries more weight, so it makes sense putting a fatter tyre at the rear, if the width of tyres used is bare minimum for rider's weight. In all other circumstances,...

    New one always goes to the front for me (moving the old one from the front to back, if my rear tyre is the one that needs changing).

    Abus Bordo X-plus. Good protection, easy to carry, but long enough to lock both the frame and a wheel to a rack, or even a post.
    It is also long enough to lock the frame to a thick post (one that...

    Brake calipers (pistons) should be kept clean, slightly lubricated with brake fluid from time to time. Sliders of brake pads can be lubed with red rubber grease, or copper grease as well. This too...

    Not in a position where a car behind you is likely to move over, rather rapidly, while a car behind him is approaching at... 60 mph?! If there was no lane to turn right, I'd advise what you are...

    28 mm is minimum for my taste. Not too sensitive to bad roads, easy to fill with air (no need for high pressure or CO2 cartridges), don't deflate over night etc.

    If my frame had just a bit more...

    28s. Can run at 5 bar pressure, even at the rear (though 6 bar is better). No pinch flats. Comfortable. Still light and quick. Grippy as well. Continental GP 4 season tyres.

    When a car behind him moves right, a car going behind that car could be surprised by a slow moving vehicle in front of him. I believe I'd keep to the left of the right turn lane, merging later on.

    You said "all weather" in the first post. Wasn't sure you meant snow as well. So the recommendation of Schwalbe Marathon Racer was all wrong on my part - do not use that one on snow. Also, it is...

    If riding in all weather on PAVEMENT, then slicks are the all weather tyres - except for snow. But for snow you need knobby tyres that you wouldn't want to use for the rest of the season (on pavement...

    Up to 8 speeds is good for friction shifting. After that, gaps between sprockets get smaller and smaller (9, 10 even tighter, 11 even more so...). Anything above 8 speeds is bad for friction...

    Even when in a car, I always leave room so I can turn and move past the car in fron of me in case they break down, without needing to back up.
