    Seeing you mention Wiggle:I find the Charge Spoon from Wiggle a very comfortable saddle. At 22 it doesn't break the ban either, and it gets tons of very good reviews. It may not be the one for you,...

    If you're struggling to find a narrow drop bar then perhaps a trekking or flat bar would be a better option?

    Socks and Sandals, platform pedals, butterfly bar, Straw hat instead of a helmet. What's not to like?

    Or use toecups. They keep your feet on the pedal, are easy to get out of, and accept a pair of boots if required. Worth a try at $5-$10.

    I think you'll struggle to rent a bike in Amsterdam and return it in Berlin, or the other way round. I think a better option would be to ride one way, and take a train back. Amsterdam - Berlin is...

    The 'seat' is called a saddle, and it should be so high that your leg is nearly fully extended when the pedal is in the lower position (6 'o clock).

    As far as the rest is concerned: take it as it...

    You can tour on anything, and I find a hybrid perfect for light touring. Light touring to me means no camping gear and staying in hotels. The bad boy looks interesting, certainly at half price, and...

    I would get a second hand (or even a new) mountain bike with mechanical disks. They use the same cables as rim brakes, and they're pretty reliable. No faffing about with hydraulics and bleeding etc....

    I carry some wet wipes in my jersey pocket to mop up any sweat that may drop on the frame. It seems to have worked well so far. I haven't noticed any rust.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I don't own a steel frame. I mainly do light touring on a Trek 7.3 Disk. The bike cost me 500, it's flown halfway across the world, and I've done multiple (short)...

    No thanks. Food is something to enjoy. Smells, textures, crunchiness. It takes time to prepare, is best enjoyed in company. Goes well with wine. I want freshly baked bread, with melting butter. Not...

    You can get chain catchers, like the deda dog fang. They are very effective in preventing chain drop. I'm running a 22-38-48 triple, meaning I have quite a drop from middle to granny, but it's very...

    Bare in mind that it's a 28km climb across the Pyrenees. It's 'only' 1000 meters up, but you may want to consider an alternative to riding for that leg if you decide to try for Barcelona.
