    I know for one that it's illegal to have a flashing headlight in washington state... but I used one every day for three months and no police officer ever took issue. I'm sure there's some state with...

    I just use one - I know I *should* run two in case one breaks/falls off/turns itself off, but I find myself too lazy to deal with a ton of lights for short trips.

    Well the big difference is physical access. The Iranian centrifuges were disabled entirely remotely via software. The demonstration at DefCon, as far as I could find online, involved the hackers...

    Can you link me to a relevant article? I did a quick search and all I've found are cases where they were either directly connected to the ECU, or had permanently modified it prior.

    I'll preface by saying that I always go as fast as I comfortably can, because I don't think the safety differences are significant. That said, I do believe slower (within reason - let's say 15mph) is...

    I strobe my ~500lm flashlight during the daytime, have it solid at nighttime. During the day, I really don't think it's any more blinding than sun glare.

    I've only gotten one on-the-road flat in the past three years (10,000+ miles). Apparently the flat gods are quite friendly to me.

    Look at how the other $800 bikes are locked, and one-up them. On some college campuses, you might need nothing more than a single U-lock, while on others you might need a beater locked like a...

    I too like roundabouts, but I don't understand the "all out or nothing" mentality planners seem to have. A small town (Malta, NY, pop. 13,000) near my hometown recently installed no fewer than...

    Perhaps, because the process of learning will require so many emergency unclips that you'll get used to it.

    I "can" trackstand but still don't trust my ability on downhills and at stop signs.

    I ride clipless 99% of the time, and I have noticed that I tend to twist my foot to "unclip" even when using platform pedals or non-clipless shoes. That's probably a better problem to have than not...

    Well, I've heard of "cyclists" using the terms "bike rider", "guy on bike", or similar in a derogatory manner, but this is a new one.

    Since it's a narrow lane, if you're riding outside the grates, cars are going to change lanes to pass. It doesn't look like there's that much traffic so they shouldn't have any trouble doing so.

    I've commuted for years on a carbon fork on some pretty badly potholed roads, and (knock on wood) haven't had any issues.
