    I have used all sorts of brands of cleats on all sorts of brands of pedals and noticed little difference. 'SPD compatible' are just that.

    I did some riding a couple weeks ago on the MUP mentioned in this thread. It was a very busy weekend with the Tulip Festival and the Victoria Day long weekend, not mention beautiful weather, but the...

    I used to do this. I called it 'Passive aggressive driving'.

    It is, IMHO, almost as bas as, and very likely to exacerbate, 'traditional' road rage.

    THings I recommend leaving at home or on the bike rack are in red.

    I also think you are exaggerating the weight of all this, unless you often have six physics, math, and engineering classes the...

    I thought he CD rims had a ceramic coating, and not a hard anodized coating, but I could be wrong.

    And if they do get polished to a silver-grey, you just spread some vegetable oil on them and put them in a 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.

    I don't believe your brake track should be relied on as a safety beacon.

    In the winter where I live, road signs often get partially or fully covered with pure white snow. In the glare of...

    I believe hard anodized rims, while they did retain the colour better than other coatings, also caused the metal to become brittle and increased the failure rate dramatically.

    Get disc brakes.

    I found a bike a few weeks ago that someone had put out as trash. It had brand new tires, but a mildly rusty chain and inoperative rapidfire shifters. I bought a bottle of WD-40 to use to free up...

    I started racing as a teenager when I weighed 190 lbs, then got up around 290 in my mid 20s. I have more recently stabilized around 240 lbs. I developed a preference for a particular shape of...

    Correct.
    Although the thin walled tubes necessary to make a very light steel frame, even though a clever builder can still create a frame with acceptable stiffness, can still have undesirable side...

    Generally not. There are three basic variables determining the stiffness of a 'traditional' bike frame made from metal tubes: material stiffness ('modulus of elasticity), tube diameter and shape,...

    All three are very nice bikes. If they fit identically well then the 2014 Tango 5 is a bit better deal, but honestly, get the one that seems most comfortable and you will never regret it.

    The fork was likely originally for 27" wheels, so knowing what brakes came on it originally will not be much help with your 700C wheels. You need to be concerned with getting a working set of brakes...

    You are going to have to extend the threading on that fork, too. I recommend seeing what other racks the LBS has when you bring the fork in.
