    Depends on the situation. If you need to monitor several things at once on a live circuit with changing situations, you simply must have multiple meters. Some of the stuff I do, even multiple...

    I do come to a complete stop at stop signs. I started meticulously obeying every law when I got fed up with people complaining about cyclists not meticulously obeying every law.

    Let me tell you,...

    Well, for cars it's still useful. Yes, I have occasionally used hand signals from a car. Most recently while towing a trailer with defective lights.

    I don't anyway, because I don't speed. It's a welcome change from my younger days when I was always pushing it. These days I see a cop car and have no reaction whatsoever because I'm never doing...

    I have occasionally ridden in what were probably 30+ MPH winds, a few times I've encountered gusts that actually stopped me, I just put on my brakes to keep from being pushed backwards and waited for...

    Seriously, if a bell bothers them, there's nothing that will make them happy short of crawling into a hole and apologizing for your own existence. A bell is already the most polite way of saying...

    I, uh, I think I'll just stick with sunscreen, thanks.

    Limited resources - like the cops all just sitting in parking lots chatting that the OP mentioned?

    Not the sound you're looking for, but this is an option (really probably louder than what you're looking for)

    Robot Check

    Honestly if people were bugged about the bell, I'd totally mount this...

    I can do it on all my Android phones, using Ting as a carrier. FWIW if you have Sprint coverage and aren't a very heavy data user, I highly recommend Ting. It's saving our family about $100/month.

    Bicyclist - a person who uses a mechanical, non-motorized means of transport.

    Proper cyclist - term invented by elitists for their own purposes. Varies depending on purpose.

    Well, if you need to do multiple measurements at once, it doesn't matter what they cost. I've seen people with four Fluke 87s ($400 each) running at once.

    In the winter when I'm on my hybrid in an upright stance and have a lot of clothing on and it's dark, absolutely, wouldn't be without it. In the summer I am in the daylight all the time anyway, so I...

    Every fatal accident that's happened around where I live since I've been here (20 years) has been a from-behind collision. Usually distracted drivers texting or screwing with their phones in some...

    Also in SE MI here. After checking the weather I rode the bike with fenders even though it's NOT FUN to ride (too heavy and IGH = hard to pedal). I don't mind getting wet but I don't want roadkill...

    As others have pointed out, night riding statistics are going to be horribly skewed, by ninjas and idiots getting killed.

    I doubt you'll ever find a set of reliable statistics about how safe it is...

    ??? I've owned probably a dozen. I've never had one that can do calories. Not that I'd care if it did but I haven't seen it. I don't think your concept of "basic" and mine are similar.

    Nope, wrong. One lead into AC-v common (lower left), the other into either the 150v or the 1000v peg, upper right.

    I had that exact same meter, but that was 30 years ago. My fav right now is the...

    I haven't noticed that I need a special tire in the rain. I just ride with my normal tires ($13 Prima II from Nashbar on one bike, $18 Streetwise from Nashbar on the other) in the rain and they work...

    True. We also have noise pollution regulations, yet on any given Saturday I could tag a motorcycle exceeding the regs by a LOT at least once every 5 minutes going past my house.

    I feel that you still have to check the tire pressure. I think the ones on a car only start to register when they get 5 or more PSI under pressure, and that's way too loose. If my tires are supposed...

    He didn't say it didn't happen. He said there's no record of it. You need to learn to speak politician. If they shred the record of it, then there's no record of it.

    A couple of months ago I had my front go flat and I stupidly decided to take a corner BEFORE stopping to change it (in my defense, I only realized it was flat about 2 seconds before the turn). I ate...

    You should absolutely follow the advice to report it in writing and say that it constitutes a hazard. That should make them legally liable for injuries caused as a result of not fixing it.
