Maybe it's just me, but there are a lot of poorly worded or tricky questions, that are not testing riding skills, or safety. Other than some bad questions, the exam does test safety knowledge.

I've only had 3 days this winter that I didn't ride to work, and one of them was today. Frozen fog in Burlingame. It's just not worth the risk when there's no traction.

Just a mis-type I'm sure, in that:
25% of 12 = 3
33% of 12 = 4

So, 33% sag front and rear is traditional, but some go with 25% up front.

Tubes in tubeless tires is fine.

The gotcha I know is a tubed-tire on a tubeless rim. The bead on tubed-tire doesn't fit a tubeless rim correctly and could blow out.
