    I'd avoid Z-72 chain. KMC X8, or SRAM PC-870 are good. Worth the money.

    In that case I'd give 4000s, or Garoskins (more probably) a try next time. How many miles can I expect from a 4 Sesons rear? How is 4000's puncture resistance compared to 4 seasons? Lots of sharp...

    Tread is just cosmetic. Those are practically slick tyres. They should last longer than GP 4000s.

    What about Continental GP 4 Seasons? Too expensive (even with mileage they last)? I'm happy with those. Very comfortable, pretty fast rolling and very good flat protection (28 mm version).

    Longer versions BR-450 (Tiagra/Sora quality level) and BR-650 (Ultegra quality level) are also compatible. All the Super SLR (cable pull ratio from what I gathered) brakes are compatible with each...

    A mother loves a child if it doesn't love back. So you can love people, animals... and things that don't love you back. Some people have snake pets - I'm sure snakes don't love their owners. Yet...

    Expensive stuff is about ego. Bicycle is about freedom. Looking at the world through the eyes of a child makes you see a red/blue/whatever bike, not a carbon frame Dura Ace equipped bike.

    Most thieves in my country take te lock with them, after cutting it. Never left at the scene. So you can't really tell how it was opened. :)

    At the same price, I'd still go for 8 speed, over more speeds. More space between sprockets, so less problems in case of bad/dirty cables and housing. Also, 8 speed is easier to shift without index...

    Backpack should be placed on the rear rack, not on your back. Make the bike carry the uncomfortable weight. No sweating your back, more comfortable. You can also add panniers if you need more luggage...
