    I don't think you have a damaged drivetrain. You probably don't spend a lot of time in that gear, so I think you'll be fine riding to work. Go get some sleep. :)

    Agreed, but what about the cyclists who had a crash without a helmet who sustained no head injury? They would not go to a hospital or morgue, so they get left out of this study as well.

    In googling it, SST is Stainless Steel Tubing.
    Obviously, the bike isn't made of stainless steel, so maybe that's an industry standard for measuring tubing diameters or something?

    I don't think OP is lying about having problems with disc brakes. I think OP is giving way too much credit to the bike mechanic, in regard to his abilities.

    You're losing credibility, here.
    You claim that your buddy is the best bike mechanic for as far as the eye can see.

    My Jamis Aurora Elite has BB7s. If they feel weak, I think you need to have them adjusted. These things stop hard.

    I'm in North Texas also. Disc brakes are kind of overkill for our flat, dry area....

    Yes. For years, there was one bike lane in Dallas. It was on a bridge over a lake, on my route home. He said his proudest moment was doing away with that bike lane. Made no sense to me, but what do I...

    I think you'll find that LAB LCIs are not hardcore VC by any means. From what I understand, Cycle Savvy instructors tend to lean more that way.
