    MTBR's fat bike forum would probably be a better place to ask (Fat Bikes). I think the suspension forks are more useful for people that ride fat bikes during the summer on mountain bike trails. ...

    Looks fairly similar to the Bontrager Node computer I started with. It was a fine computer but only uses ANT+ sensors (pricey), and a maximum of 2 bikes. If you plan on having multiple bikes and...

    I used rollers quite a bit last winter and never got comfortable enough to keep my water bottle on the bike. I have a step on either side of the rollers for take off and landings. Some people build...

    500 and 800 both have ANT+ for power, HR, cadence and are / were available bundled with HR & speed/cadence combo sensors. The 200 cannot connect to sensors.

    Hitch racks obscure brake lights and turn signals. Maybe they don't want to get rear ended.

    I've mostly given up on signalling right hand turns since drivers just wait anyway. If it is of no use to them I'd rather have two hands on the handlebar going into a turn. More often then not when...

    There have been a number of times I've got to the end of a ride only to discover my taillight turned off somewhere along the way. Sometimes due to dead batteries, or in the case of my Radbot 1000 a...

    First test inconclusive but promising. I did a tour of various problem intersections, but other vehicles were present at most of them even waiting a cycle or two to see if it would clear. But there...

    Gave building my own reflector a try just for kicks. I figure unidirectional will be sufficient so I wouldn't need a sphere. Used a compass to draw a 3" radius circle on a piece of non-corrugated...

    I got search hits for that term in various patent applications, DOT documents and product literature, so it is probably an industry term to differentiate different types of sensors.

    It just might, need to google "how to increase radar signature".

  13. A step backwards in traffic signal automation

    The city I live in uses pole mounted microwave vehicle detectors on practically every signaled intersection, as harsh winters would destroy the in ground variety. Even on a bike they work like a...

    I don't believe any plastic food containers are ever turned back into food grade plastics. Polyester fleece seems to be the primary example of what used pop bottles get turned into. Still better...

    I did a little searching and it does look like carbon fiber is recyclable. Since you are no longer dealing with a continuous fiber, they can't be weaved back into a fabric. So they need to be used...

    You can always donate by improving the map for your local area. Assuming there aren't a few OCD editors near you that have completely added everything. I just finished cycling every road in my city...

    The nice thing about a head tube mount is that it eliminates handlebar motion and improving stability. Even if you pedal smoothly the bars move back and forth slightly with each stroke, which...

    Our city put them up at every bridge on the MUP. I ignore them because the whole concept of them is asinine. Any rider with a shred of common sense would slow to a walking pace when passing...

    My typically heavy trunk bag gets even heavier during the summer months when I toss in a 2L platypus bag to refill my 700 ml insulated bottles. At least it doesn't take up much space when its empty....

    I drilled two small holes in my helmet to mount my Take a Look mirror. I never could mount it to my eyeglass arms. Invaluable as I almost always drift off my line when looking behind me.
