No, I questions your qualifications for using these phrases.

You know what they say, right? Those that can't do, teach. I don't think you can do, maybe you ought to go back to teaching. Just tell...

The first time I rode mine I was a bit clumsy, sure. After a while I got very good at it, took me a week before I decided to take it out into traffic, I rode in empty parking lots & paved high school...

It is not that you tested them, I know you did that. But you did not ride a recumbent long enough to form any sort of opinion about them. You judged them based on the short time you did ride them....

WTF is risk averse? Sounds like another bull**** term made up by Forester.

John before you state another term will you please give us a list of these with their definitions? Seriously it sounds...

Is this based on your personal experience? Or is this a known fact all across the nation? If it apply's all across the U.S. I take that to mean you have ridden in all areas of the country to base...

Though it is hard to shift the center of mass & center of gravity on a recumbent, keep in mind it already much lower then on a DF. In every case where I had to make an emergency manuver on my 'bent I...

The thing is on a bicycle the operator is part of the steering system, a major part of it. But let's give the benefit of the doubt here. Has anyone ever heard of a test lab similar to how cars are...

You still haven't answered the questions as to why this is even needed. Or at least why an end consumer would want to or even need to do this. I can see if the manufacturer would need to perform such...

So what the hell is steering displacement? My search on the internet has yielded no results for a definition. Sounds like another bull**** term made up. Anyone can answer, not just HH & JF.

WTF is a steering displacement test? Never heard of it, it is not in Effective Cycling, nor on wikipedia. If it is steering the bike on a curve to maintain control, it handles very well & very...

Forester has no problem speaking against recumbents.

I just re-read the part of Effective Cycling, (I decided to do this prior to burning it), about recumbents. He states he test rode some, liked the long wheel base better then the short, but still...

I won't convince you not to put him or HH, for that matter on your ignore list. In fact I encourage you & others to do so. I think I will too.

He did say pedestrians use the path. That tells me he is using the term bike path in a generic sense & that the path is an MUP. He also stated used the words "I don't want to rile anyone by buzzing...

You're not alone, he accuses everyone who does not agree with his doctrine. I think we should start a support group for those that have been accused of this by JF & HH.

I'll start a thread on it.

First this maybe should be in the A&S forum. Second, slow your ass down on the path. A bike path or MUP is no place to be riding at 20 mph. You want to do that ride on the freaking roadway, not the...
