After some discussion on chat, we're realized the site has several list questions with many answers, mostly from the early days of the site.

Let's post candidate questions as community wiki answers to this thread, like this:

Question

  • Problems
  • Suggested cleanup actions: Deletion, editing, combining answers, whichever.

That second line is what people will vote on - agreement or disagreement to your suggestion action on the question.

Please vote up or down, and use the comments to discuss. Are these truly list questions? Can they be edited so they're of more value to the site? If you like one of these and want it to stick around, let's hear why.

What's your most useful cycle accessory?

  • This is a chatty, forum-style question.
  • Any unique answers can go to the Terminology Index, then we delete this. It's not referenced in that many places, so that shouldn't be a problem.

What do you wish someone had told you before your first commute?

  • This has 31 answers that go across 2 pages, it's a bit of a mess. It's also kinda chatty.
  • Maybe edit into fewer answers?

This is now at 33 answers, and I'd say "kinda chatty" is an understatement. :) –  amcnabb Aug 10 '12 at 21:11

Bicycling Apps for Android

  • It is a big list. It's slightly more maintainable than "Recommended Good Value Cycle Lights for Commute" because new Android apps aren't released quite as frequently, but it still seems destined to become outdated.

Best chain lubricant for road bikes?

  • This is an obvious list question, since there's no single answer that summarizes it.

  • I suggest deleting this and asking a question more along the lines of "What are the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of lube for road bikes?"
