Use everyone here as a guideline, not a requirement, for what works for you. There generally isn't a "wrong" way to do things, amalgamate and use what information you can but recognize a lot of it may not apply to your personal situation.

I put off getting back into cycling for over a year because my friends told me I couldn't have fun on anything less than a 105 equipped carbon bike, and few bike shops around me at the time had an interest in selling me anything under the $1500 mark. Took me a while to figure out I could have plenty of fun on old refurbished vintage bikes that cost a tenth the price.

Also, using your hand to clean to clean glass shards from a fast moving wheel sounds like a great way to mangle your hand, in any of numerous ways.
