I concentrate on my own vehicle, let them pass when they are ready , without a prompt from me.
Only ice will keep me from riding
About 40 to 50 feet.
I have no idea in answer to your question, but I do like the ability to keep my front brake closed when standing it up against a tree or shop wall. For that I use a bungee cord that I have cut into a...
How long did it take before you were able to drink water normally ?
Day or night , I always wear glasses for sun, wind, dust, or bug protection.
I was able to watch only the first half of the video, its more a video capturing anger over nothing, than about bicycles IMO
My Schwalbe Marathon Mondials have 8,000 miles on them and I expect to easily end up with 10k before they are retired. OTOH they are quite heavy, but then again I have had not even one flat with...
Agreed, it is better today overall
I ride to the few group rides I do each year, an 18 mile round trip to the start point that is farthest away.
I don't think it can ever be totally eradicated, but a clean chain helps a lot. When wearing pants, a strap around the right leg also helps.

I have no idea about Cambodia, but when you were in Bangkok, did you visit the ( Bike Zone ) ph 6626521559 ? I would be very surprised if they didn't have what you needed. Or just at the north end...

A similar experience as yours. I just could get a release and toppled over, fortunately to the right , towards the roads edge.
I ride in the rain, and have never washed mine.
You've gotten 5500 miles on a chain and you ask for advice its their care ! But to answer your question, I always lube a new chain.
Civilized , is it a particularly busy MUP ? Looks typically quite in the photo.
