    Wow
    Old thread-but interesting.
    The recumbent-was a pricy bike-sold it for about $2000
    It had 2 front wheels-orange color-shimano parts-nice
    There was a Titanium frame-which was nice
    I don't...
  2. Rapid Rise derailleur xt m760 + dual levers XT M760

    Used Rapid rise derailleur-and RIGHT SIDE dual shift brake levers
    M 760 fully functional-
    used everyday for 5 years-but on road and levee
    Works fine-will even shift onto the 41t add on cog( as...
  3. Well, I guess we are done. Where you position...

    Well,
    I guess we are done.
    Where you position depends on circumstances
    for me part of circumstances is how LEO would view my riding position
    so I only ride in the middle of the lane when I'm...

    The LEO was fooling with his computer,right??

    Why would that be evidence
    for aything other than my position
    that TEXTING and other forms of inattention-
    make CYCLISTS in effect-invisible-
    so...

    Evidence?? (said like Allen Iverson "PRACTICE")
    There isn't any evidence for ANY of this-!!
    My position is based on "cars are 6-7 feet wide and spend the most time in the middle of the lane"...

    Radio public service ad today said drivers who look at an incoming text
    on average take their eyes off the road for 5 seconds
    5 seconds 35mph vs 15 mph
    means they closed on you 150 feet
  7. If the driver is TEXTING That is EXACTLY what...

    If the driver is TEXTING
    That is EXACTLY what will happen 100% of the time if you are dead center
    If you are FRAP- you might luck out-clean miss or "just" mirror thump-
    sure he might get you if...
  8. Because you can't prevent a driver from just...

    Because you can't prevent a driver from just swinging father left-into the oncoming lane
    and making the pass anyway
    Of course it is a bigger risk-
    and if they suddenly realize they aren't going to...

    If you LANE CONTROL
    You will have fewer close passes.
    But CLOSE PASSES- don't kill you.

    Close passers are attentive drivers-
    not "I didn't see him" drivers
  10. No it isn't. Texting drivers still spend the...

    No it isn't.
    Texting drivers still spend the MOST time cutting a swath heavily biased toward the middle of the road.
    Their swings-left and right-are greater(probably) but the middle of the road is...

    ItsJust
    Yeah that is BRIGHT
    I looked it up
    11.1 V and something like 3.5 amp hrs-
    spread over 5 hours-something like 6 LED watts-like an old time 50 watt bulb-
    very BRIGHT for a bike tail light...

    Is the DS500 a blinking light??
    Guessing a VERY BRIGHT blinking light
    might overpower whatever is distracting the driver

    Probably a good reason cops and others use those blinking lights
    hard...

    Riders who are hit by cars
    aren't hit because they are invisible
    EXCEPT when they are practically invisible-riding at night-dark clothing no lights-as a member already mentioned.

    And they RARELY...
  14. So please don't try to tell me that a cyclist in...

    So please don't try to tell me that a cyclist in the lane is destined to be run over from behind. It just ain't true.

    Almost Trick-
    you know I didn't say the above
    because it ISN'T TRUE....

    Conflict about it-lane taking- seems to happens in rural areas-or outskirts of towns-
    on roads with 40-45 mph speed limits- and not much of a shoulder
    A few years back-someone on this forum...

    Chris516
    I get it-2 of your 3 accidents were while you were FRAP-ing.
    And you take that to mean FRAP-ing is less safe than LANE TAKING
    I take it to mean you have bad luck-or ride in an area with...

    Gotta agree with Wolf Dust!!

    cute cat-we have 3.5 cats and a pushy greyhound
    They pester me for treats all day long-
    cats aren't usually treat pests-but ours are!
    The mutt- is a full time treat...

    It is strictly PROBABILITY
    Far right is where cars spend the least time
    They- cars-spend the MOST TIME cutting a swath down the middle of the road.

    Besides-if you in the middle of the lane-...
  19. No I don't like close passes but preventing...

    No I don't like close passes
    but preventing close passes by preventing passes
    WON'T protect you from the read ending that will cripple or kill you.
    You LANE TAKERS miss the point
    The driver who...

    Well relative to the average forum partisan he was polite and likable.
    Granted he was vigorously partisan-pushing his opinions as fact-backing them up with plausible arguments-maybe even with some ...

    The middle of the lane is where unguided cars spend the most time
    Bike riders hit from behind-are hit by drivers who aren't even aware they are in front of them
    "I didn't see him"
    It has been...

    I like to bike-
    I thought his name was John -
    maybe John Forester??
    Brit living in the USA-??
    He was a big VC booster-
    It has been a while-so maybe I have it wrong
  23. In the AGE OF TEXTING Riding in the middle of...

    In the AGE OF TEXTING
    Riding in the middle of the road-or left of middle
    is a bad idea because that is EXACTLY where the occasionally guided cars spend most of their time.
    They TEXTER driven cars...
