    And, there's the end of the discussion. If that's the foundation of your (and OP's) approach to cycle-commuting (and shared use of roads in general), then all other 'discussion' of details is merely...

    Depends. If it's a minivan with a mom trying to handle some rowdy kids or something, then she's got other stuff going on. If it's (more likely nowadays) somebody texting, and likely to not notice...

    The person in front of me I'm sure is 99% of the time completely unaware of me, which is the problem. And for blocking left-turn lanes it's not a question of just waiting for the light to change,...

    I use my hand and 'c'mon' to try to wave them through, some do, some don't. I'll give the wave once or twice, but if I've given them room and they don't go, I don't go crazy about it.

    That does look like an amazing deal, that's in my top two for N+1, but currently they are all sold out (and for the past month or two they've only had tiny sizes).

    My other main contender for N+1...

    Can't tell how you did, it all depends on how long you were walking around in the middle. But there's no need to compare yourself to anybody else -- time yourself on the same route, and watch your...

    Whenever I'm driving and am caught behind someone who has an ample gap in front of them and won't make any attempt to make room for me, I consider them a d1ck.

    Cars are not 10 feet wide, if you move to the left side of the lane there should be room for a right turn.


    Yes, quite often in my car I wish I had a CB so I could ask some thoughtless driver if...

    That's a very illustrative google map, and I think reinforces my strategy. At the front of the crosswalk, in line with the bike lane paint, there is plenty of room for right turns, unless it's a...

    Only one guy came out to lunch with me, but I know of 4 others besides myself that rode today. Riding back from lunch uphill, trying (not) to bend over a Chipotle-gut was not too pleasant :cry:

    That's a sleek commuting machine. If I was a year later on building my commuter, I'd be on a straggler instead of a crosscheck.

    Not to mention brakes and tires. However, no lockout fork on either one, which is a feature I would use.
