I'm the same way. I spend 10 or more hours a week on the bike, and instinct makes me look up and left whenever I feel like checking out what's behind me. I'm sure it has to look like I'm rolling my...

What part of the country and how far is your commute? The electric bike is not likely helping.

+1. I've been out at 3am. I've been out at 2am when bars close. Remain prudent, visible, and modify your route in the name of safety if you must. There's not really a time of day I feel it's not safe.

Unofficially, my answer is "yes" however it's a really, really bad idea. They like to be perfectly adjusted and if you're the slightest bit off, they get finicky and slip or skip. I'd imagine it's...

I actually had a fascinating half-hour-long bout of Drunken Bible Trivia with one of the panhandlers. I.E. We were BOTH drunk. It was the best $0.18 I've ever spent.
