    +1. I've been out at 3am. I've been out at 2am when bars close. Remain prudent, visible, and modify your route in the name of safety if you must. There's not really a time of day I feel it's not safe.

    Unofficially, my answer is "yes" however it's a really, really bad idea. They like to be perfectly adjusted and if you're the slightest bit off, they get finicky and slip or skip. I'd imagine it's...
