    I very much agree with you on this point. I wish more governments did as well.

    I agree that signals need to work for all road users, not just automobiles. One of my pet peeves is traffic signals that don't cycle unless a motor vehicle triggers the sensor.

    I mostly agree, but also think a move to a more "complete streets" ideology is important. Using available right of ways, this often means taking space dedicated to on-street parking and reallocating...

    This isn't entirely accurate, though 6v 3w has been the standard for a long time. Though most dynamos are designed to output 6v 3w, wheel size is a factor. With Schmidt, for instance the Son 28 is...

    I'm pretty happy with my Edge 810 now that I've gotten used to it. In the beginning I did experience some frustration. I got the whole package with heart rate monitor and speed/cadence, but since I...

    Hmm. The Supernova lights have different mounts than other light manufacturers. Not sure I'd want to try that Supernova fork crown mount on a canti brake boss. I was experimenting with mounting a...

    I'm not convinced the flange distance of the SP is so short as to cause a problem for under normal conditions, but I do consider the 12mm difference enough to be worth noting when comparing the two...

    First, I'm extremely happy with my SON wheels. That said, my experience with the ShutterPrecision is very good so far. The PV-8 hub is similar in size and shape to the newer SON 28, though the...

    I stick with steady lights. There's enough animosity toward cyclists already.
