Yeah, which chain lube should I use while riding on the sidewalk, regular or some special stuff?

And are bibs too much for sidewalk riding or are shorts good enough?

Brief summary of my opinion: why make new topic on sidewalk cycling when there's a sticky topic specifically for that purpose?

Found out that here in the LBC it's only illegal in the "business district".

**UPDATE** Believe it or not, it happened AGAIN tonight, same guy !! This time however, it had been threatening rain, so I had one of those really long golf umbrellas with me. I had just turned to look behind and I see the guy racing up the sidewalk in our direction, so I moved aside and jammed the umbrella into his spokes just as he was passing. He pitched forward over the handlebars and his head made a nasty thumping noise as he hit the pavement. We went in for a closer look and noticed he was conscious, but bleeding rather profusely from his ears and mouth. I showed him my cell phone and told him I could call for help, but that I had no intention of doing so, and that I hoped the pain was really bad. With that, we walked away laughing.

If this isn't something that happened in a dream, you are truly one sick puppy. Even if it was a dream or joke, is isn't a sign of good mental balance.
