    I would like to mention, though, that California law specifically allows motorists to pass closer than three feet if the motorist is going a "reasonable" speed.

    Flipping the bird is an "F you" gesture, that's an insult. Do you say "F you" to friends/coworkers/family who make a mistake and don't realize they screwed up?
  3. The driver clearly stopped after the cyclist...

    The driver clearly stopped after the cyclist flipped him off. Are you suggesting that flipping someone off, kicking their car, yelling at them, etc is not going to change their behavior in any way?

    How is that defending the driver? Obviously, the confrontation could have been escalated in other ways (kicking the truck, yelling, what have you). And the driver obviously is crazy and has anger...

    Sure, they should, but testing that theory out for yourself seems like a really bad idea.

    Lift your arm with your hand palm up, like a "wtf?" gesture.

    Obviously the driver is in the wrong, but why go around flipping off potential homicidal maniacs in 3000+lb killing machines?

    I commuted daily in Erie, PA for a summer. Despite the reasonable (albeit hot and muggy at times) weather, I saw no more than ~4 other cyclists over a 3-month period. In the winter, I'd expect that...

    Does this approach actually work? I've never actually gotten a ticket (in a car or on a bike) but I don't think arguing "Yes, I was speeding, but other people speed too" would get you out of a ticket.

    The second photo looks like a long shackle U-lock. I have two mini U-locks and I most certainly could not fit a bike rack, back wheel, two chainstays, AND the far-side crank inside.

    The idea is that you don't have to worry about theft, and you're free to take multi-modal trips - you have a bike to ride even if you walked or took a subway/taxi to where you are, and vise versa.

    The whole "yield if there's no traffic, stop if there is" discussion is kind of missing the point of a yield sign. If there's no traffic, there's nobody to yield to. If there is traffic, you yield -...

    Without question, you're supposed to follow the pedestrian signal. That said, I never bother actually pushing the button unless I need to stop for a red anyways.

    I don't think there's a problem with riding with a single earbud - I can still hear approaching traffic perfectly fine with my other ear. Do you turn off the radio and open all of your windows when...

    Certainly object recognition leaves a bit to be desired. But if you look at some of Google's city driving demo videos, they've already done the hard part of translating real world cars to their size,...

    I never said anything about it being ready for market, or that it will take over the world, or anything like that - I'm just saying that on a technology basis, the concept is sound. You implied that...

    If you're looking for cheap and don't mind a 2 week wait, Chinese vendors have bar tape for about $2 shipped. 4 months in and it hasn't fallen apart on me yet.

    I'm a computer scientist. Artificial Intelligence in general is probably 99.99% pattern recognition - literally mountains of past data being considered in "if this happens, do this" type decisions....

    If I was the driver, I probably would've yelled at you too (at the least honked). I don't care if you run a stop sign, just don't take my right-of-way.

    Motorcycle helmets have soft foam in addition to (not instead of) bike helmet type "hard" foam.

    I've got three BD bikes - a Motobecane Sprint Pro road bike ($800 a bit over 3 years ago), which I supplemented last year with a Dawes fixie ($175, for being cheap and being left places), and a...

    Yup, thanks - I'd definitely use that between downtown and MS. My main concern though is the huge splotch of red on that map heading west and north out of crossroads.
