    By that definition, my car doesn't need brakes, downshifting my car's transmission alone meets your standard. In practice, old, mechanical style car brakes work well enough to satisfy any equipment...

    There's also the psychological phenomena where people only see what they expect to see. That seems to be the case with the OP's incident. Google the invisible ***** or selective attention for...

    You rode by a sign that said you must dismount in front of a cop and wondered why he was PO'd? How about showing some respect for the uniform.

    Swaging a thread can make the thread fatter than the rod it's swaged from, which seems to be the case in Hillrider's example.

    Not sure what you mean by that. Lowering the gear is like getting a longer crowbar. At some point, you break your axle.

    Children have larger heads in proportion to their bodies than adults. Doesn't that make them more likely to need a helmet?

    $50,000 is the bail that has been set by the judge according to schedule. It's written on the warrant, hence, "$50000 warrant." You'd have to read the warrant to see if there's a 10% option. You...

    Sure, if the cop suspected your brakes didn’t work, you could get ticketed. That seems kind of obvious. Cops have the power to do roadside inspections on cars, trucks, and any other vehicles using...

    I know that anyone who can ride a bicycle can operate a mechanical brake to the point of skidding. Can you say the same about every rider who rides a fixie? or will the cops have to test every fixie...

    The minimum recommended major diameter for an M5 thread is 4.826mm. You can mic yours behind the threads and see if it's thick enough to die. The only concern I would have is hardness. Rolled...

    The smallest FCSX crank set they sell to use with their wide ratio 8 speed hub has a 34 tooth ring.

    I use a 38 tooth ring on mine.

    Galling is a problem. That's why we use helicoils for putting SS screws in Al and silver plated SS screws for putting in SS.

    The formula to calculate torque includes the coefficient of friction which means adding anything should change the number. The mfr of the thread lock might have specs for that.

    Steel in steel, the minor diameter of the screw determines the breaking strength. Steel in aluminum, the aluminum threads are the weak point. That's why if you over torque a steel screw in an Al...

    headloss has pretty much nailed it. I have the Coda Elite and I agree about the gearing unless you live where it's flat and then 7 speeds might be fine.

    The point is that when you turn left through traffic you must be attuned to people who may be driving over the speed limit whether legally or not.

    Yes you can. That's what people do everyday when they turn left through incoming traffic. Suppose it had been an emergency responder driving over the speed limit?

    If you're going to put a stainless screw into a stainless boss, it would be a good idea to apply a lubricant first. SS in SS will weld more solid than a braze. Silver plating works best as a lube. ...

    It's not up to the cops to decide whether a fixie is considered to have brakes. Unless there's been a definitive ruling, they're not wrong writing tickets to fixies. It's up to the courts to decide....
