    Fixed it for you:
    "They have the right to use the MUP however they wish."

    If a cyclist is annoyed that a pedestrian is in their way, they are always welcome to dismount and jog around them.

    Yes...I'm one of those people. In my experience in the USA bells are often used by people who cycle to bully pedestrians into moving out of the way. I would strongly support a law that makes all use...

    in my 28 years of bike commuting as an adult and ~11 years of near daily cycling as a child/teeen these are the things that have never happened to me.

    Your thanks would be topical on a thread that discussed the legalization of motorists treating stop signs as yields on carforums.com.

    It always amuses to see people equate a multi-ton ICE-powered machine that people DRIVE to a light-weight human-powered accessory that human beings RIDE. Moreover, as Idaho, multiple cities in...

    If 40 years of evidence in Idaho (and multiple years in Colorado cities) is not enough then I suspect you are simply ideologically opposed to what is the de facto practice of most cyclists -- rolling...

    The Idaho stop allows cyclists to circumvent red lights legally.

    I used kool stop salmons but after having to trash ~10 rims/wheels due to wear I switched to discs brakes. Switching to disc brakes has easily saved me $3000 over the years.

    Where did you get the idea that disc brakes require constant maintenance? I serviced the pair of deore lx disc brakes sitting in my parts bin exactly once over the 8 years I used them and that was...

    And...YES...I know this is the 185th time we've discussed the Idaho Stop but I think that a well-known bike columnist (and bike...

    And I vehemently believe that our urban roads, streets, paths, and sidewalks should be safe enough that the risk of an inattentive kid being hit is astronomically low. This would, of course, require...

    Exactly. The cyclist in that video was an idiot but its just as feasible to ride safely on a sidewalk as it is in the road.
  15. I ride in the road quite a bit but I almost never...

    I ride in the road quite a bit but I almost never ride like motorvehicle (a light-weight accessory is not a "vehicle"). If the sidewalk is a legal and more efficient/safer route then I always prefer...

    Apart from their protective function, I also use gloves because they dramatically improve grip.

    I would never buy a bike with mechanical disk brakes. They are the "freewheel" of disc brakes -- still manufactured but obsolete and inferior in every respect.

    When I started racing my sprint/attack speed increased quite a bit but my commute/in the pack speed did not change much. In other words, most people who consider themselves fast commuters never...

    The M324s weigh 1.2 lbs. That is simply ridiculous.

    For weight weenies these 286 gm pedals work very well for shorter platformish trips:

    I only use panniers for touring or shopping because they really detract from bike handling.
