    Most definitely this. For every accident, there's probably 99 that "almost happened". You'll never see most of them in the news or Facebook. And then there's the 100th in which everything that could...

    He can have all the drinking problems he wants, but the moment he drives onto the road, it becomes everyone else's problem too.

    Enough with the "he simply made a mistake", even a guy with 50 DUIs...

    Alleviate perhaps, but since cyclists' lives are on the line, both sides should be working together to minimize the damage.

    Interesting points. Yes I know it's almost 2 mths ago but I don't see any topic on this. Should other states follow suit?

    I was using the Cygolite Expilion 680 and it's a great light but kinda bulky. My current go-to light for short rides is the Light & Motion Urban 550... maybe for that price you can look at L&M Urban...

    "seems to never be the parent's fault"? That's your argument? Plenty of time the parents ARE held responsible. Your post reeks of desperation and ignorance.

    This is where the division is - the best advice I can give you is, give up all pre-conceived "I know better than parents themselves" arrogance and talk to a parent you respect.

    Ask them what it's...

    Yeah, understood, but the bike will not be all black... it's black & white... the silver just stands out too much for my taste.

    And I have a fair amount of lighting that it should be a non-issue.

    Thanks so much for the informative replies guys... guess it's quite obvious it's not going to happen, but is there no way to "make" it black without affecting performance (or just slightly)?

    To be fair, he did say the cyclist bore some responsibility, but the mother was mostly to blame.

    And his assumptions are based on some vague comparison to other irresponsible parents that had...

    I think the key word here is "severe". No one wants an accident. Even a scraped knee is not acceptable.

    Heck, even near-misses get cyclists on this forum pretty riled up. Why do they think only...

    That's your opinion, and it sounds like you are only insisting that because it helps your case. Almost no one else agrees.

    The parents certainly share the blame - or takes most of it - IF it was a...

    It's weird that cyclists are now demanding that people constantly keep their wits around them even while on a casual walk.

    Used to be that people went on walks to relax, not be constantly...

    Totally agree. Keep an air horn and small bell handy for the appropriate situations. Use yr voice if necessary. Causing people to jump is as funny as a car honking a cyclist near the edge of a bike...

    Pretty much this. I wouldn't. And I believe my wife and I are responsible parents.

    I'm just not one who feels like every sharp edge or hard surface or every square inch outside the house is going...

    What we DO know for sure is a cyclist irresponsibly sped on a "busy walkway" (your words) and knocked down the little girl. The circumstances of how that happened is either based on vague assumptions...

    Spray painting bicycle rims

    I'm thinking of spraying my rims completely black, to fit with the overall aesthetic of the bike. Currently the spokes + outer rim is completely black but there's a strip of reflective silver which...

    Or if you must, a cheap option is the Vincita B132B Case. Soft padded case with wheels. Saves on weight vs hard case, and you can just pack clothes and/or...

    Maybe it was the way the video was filmed, but the accident did look pretty bad. Thankfully she just looked a little banged up but fine.
