    My commuter bike, a Novara Gotham, has a belt drive and a chain guard. I will admit that I have been giving a lot of serious thought to removing the chain-guard. It seems a bit redundant.

    I really think that changing the rule at stop signs to "bicycles must yield at stop signs" would help. Why, because it would break the conditioning of engaging in illegal activity. Because stop signs...

    The Internal Gear Hub (IGH) will probably be better for most use. It is probably a bit heavier; however, it will require less maintenance to keep running right.

    I ordered my winter tyres today

    It seemed a good idea to order them before I, and everyone else, needed them. I read some reviews and the Schwalbe Studded tyres seemed to be well recommended.

    There don't really seem to be many...

    I don't use the O-ring at all. Like the previous poster, I use zip-ties. For some reason people seem less likely to steal stuff off the bike if it is zip-tied on.
