Nope, just not particularly talented at running. It actually took quite a bit of hard work to get to a sub-7 mile.

27.5" is better. 29" is too heavy. 😋

Seriously, though, when I was shopping for a MTB I test rode both, and came to the conclusion that 29" is great as long as both wheels stay on the ground, a...

Performative outrage. Disk vs. rim, carbon vs. steel, Chevy vs. Ford, protestant vs. Catholic, Niners vs. Chiefs. Tribalism is fun in moderation.

I ran a 5:15 marathon in September this last year, and rode a 6:10 century about a month later. If I was guesstimating I would say the marathon was roughly twice as hard. Two other factors for me,...

If they get rid of the free version there may be a slight temporary uptick in revenue, but they'll be bankrupt within 5 years. That's my prediction.

"This" was referring to squirreliness, not tire height. A wider rim will result in a tire cross section closer to an arch than a lightbulb. That should result in less horizontal flex.

Thee is singular object
Thou is singular subject
Ye is plural subject
You is plural object
Y'all is redundant. It's trying to bring back functionality to the English language that has been lost.

Cycling as transportation is cheap. Cycling as a hobby is fairly expensive, and thus attracts generally wealthier-than-average individuals. This tends to map with higher education levels.

Each crank (except the front one) has 2 chainrings: the drive ring, which is visible, and the driven ring which is hidden and is the same size as the drive ring of the crank ahead of it.

That's fair. The bottom line is that I work in mud, I want to play clean. I can understand if someone works in a clean environment wanting to play in the mud.

Very possibly. TBH I'm planning on riding this bike about another 3-5,000 miles before I replace it, so that doesn't bother me much. Cassette and chainrings look pretty good to me, though.

I've had my eye on, but never tried, a thin stocking cap. It just needs to be enough to hold your ears against your head and out of the wind. For the rest of your face my go-to for winter is a beard.

I ride both gravel and pavement on tires marked 32mm that measure 30mm. Give it a shot with what you have before you invest in a whole new wheelset.
