I find that I vary my cadence on hills based on a lot of factors, including how tired I am, the heat, and winds. If I'm tired or getting overheated, I will spin a hill in a lower gear, but if I'm up...

Yes, I dispute that. I ride many miles on the mid-20s mph in very high gear in the flat. I am most definitely not soft pedaling it and I am flying past people pedaling a lot faster than I am., I...

If Iím going on a long and hot ride, I make sure to carry a salty snack. Pretzel Crisps in a ziplock bag are a good choice. And I make sure to drink a bottle of water per hour.

People on this site rarely have good things to say about motorists (despite many being one), but here they're often very polite - too polite!

I pick up a lot of road grit on my legs that my front tire churns up. Hairy legs tend to make washing out that grit more difficult.

As a non-racer I asked a racer who shaved his legs why on heck he did it. It couldn't be for a speed advantage as the physics of that made no sense to me. His answer made a lot of sense though. If...

Bad jokes aside, if races can be won by a thousandth of a second I'd say its worth it. But I'm sure its mostly cosmetic. Even so, imagine a swimmer with hair on his back and legs.

If I tried something like that I know at some point I'd forget the lock was on the rotor, jump on the bike and try to start off, break both the rotor and the calipers, fall down and break my arm.

DO NOT clamp on the frame. You will destroy the bike. You could, as suggested, raise the seatpost and clamp there, then drop the post back down when you are ready to ride again.

Well, you could mark the seatpost position with a Sharpie or something, raise the post high enough to clamp it and put it back when you are done.
