    It's not unfair. His problem appears to be uncommon. Aerodynamics issues would likely not produce an uncommon problem. Suggesting the cause is something else.

    It's a standard USB data cable. Mini-B on one end and A on the other.

    Probably not. It's usually not hard to tell (imho).

    Anyway, regardless of the reason, people have the freedom to "bail out". In the " free market of ideas", no one is required to "buy" what is...

    Some people in the US have the same complaint. I suppose it happens at times but it's not a certainty (my experience matches yours).

    If this was characteristic of the bag, one might expect to have heard of the problem before.

    Unlikely.

    Clearly, distracted drivers can end up being where they shouldn't be. But they aren't distracted only where they shouldn't be. Distracted drivers run into things right in front of them...

    How is a driver looking at their cell phone going to see you in the lane?

    Of course, not only do they not see you, you are exactly in front of where their car is typically travelling.

    Bizarre.

    The line/cable should be able to handle 6 volts (it's not that different than 5). Amperage should be the concern.

    The issue is that the USB power source will be limited/regulated to be 5 volts....

    Which is another way of what I said (a few times).




    The selection criteria is over-broad (often) or mismatched.

    There are two different/opposing perspectives. Both are correct.

    Insurance is focused on populations. Individuals are focused on themselves.

    Yes, but the risk analysis is for a population (for an imaginary "individual" that represents the population).

    The risk for an actual individual is going to be different. That's why insurance...

    And you have no idea whether the driver was sufficiently careful.

    This significant lack of information undermines your seeming certainty that the cyclist could have avoided the collision.

    People drove too close years ago too. Other than the cell-phone/texting issue, is there any indication that drivers now are worse?

    That's utterly wrong no matter how many times you write it.
