    I don't know anything about the Gear Pro. I just picked up a SJCAM M10. The reviews are good on it. I haven't had mine out yet, it just showed up on the 24th.

    I don't believe for a second that legislators are stupid. I think in the case of lawmakers, the old adage should be reversed and modified:

    That is exactly the wrong capacitor to use. I bet you got that from a microwave.

    Sounds like a mental issue to me. Assuming that this is a relatively warm place, I'd grab any bike I could and ride it with the intent to not hurry anywhere.

    I think the thing that will most improve cyclist safety is enforcing laws already on the books. Drunk driving, distracted driving, aggressive/fast driving, just plain being a friggin' moron behind...

    I don't think 49cc scooters require a license in any state, and they're legal in the street in all states (just not limited access roads). I don't have an opinion on whether they should require a...

    As I said above, I had a Serfas TL60 that failed in the rain. Serfas did replace it. I don't know if the replacement would have fared better, as I lost it about a week later because the fabric clip...

    I've had deer run in front of me, and also a few times they've leapt onto the road and run alongside me for a few meters.
    I had a hawk fly alongside me once for about 50 feet. That was awesome. ...

    We don't want to wait until drivers kill someone to be able to charge them with something. There has to be a law defining cell phone use as an impairment if you're going to charge people driving...

    I toyed with 808s but they have a lot of shortcomings. Mainly they're not waterproof (maybe there are cases?) and the battery life isn't long enough for my commute. I could run power in, but they...
