yeah, and i thought the 'researcher's test was biased.
I saw, when they showed the reseacher riding without a helmet, he was also using ortliebs, making his bike appear wider from behind. when he rode with the helemt, he wasn't using the panniers. BIAS.
i know i get passed closer without panniers than when running a full load.
I also noticed there was a bike lane on Manhattan island
that was clear of motor traffic, and a lot of other bicyclists. when they showed john stossel without a bike lane, i saw no other cyclists.
