    Really? Just one single type of crash? Ok lol. I guess you have no idea what you're talking about.

    My point is that there are people who will disagree that safety belts are necessary, just as...

    I believe the term is "as light and as wieldy as possible" :)

    That's the reason I spent almost as much time and money modifying the folded-rolling as the cycling parts. To effortlessly breeze by...

    But just to summarize:

    Safety belts are awesome and if you weren't wearing one when you crashed you would probably have died.

    Safety belts suck and are a BigCorp marketing gimmick,...

    "wrong way cyclist" is not much better. If it is in fact agreed that they are going the WRONG way, then what's wrong with using a (barely) derogatory term . Better to have a few people's feelings...

    I hardly think the word "salmon" is offensive. They're tenacious, hardy fish who also happens to be delicious.

    I'm sure if drivers were to pick a word, it wouldn't be half as kindly.

    I've been putting off wearing my helmet for months - a pretty expensive one for when I was trail-biking - thinking it would just be annoying to have on my head when I ride on the roads.

    However,...

    I was considering it but the downsides don't seem worth it unless you face glass and nails on the roads every day. Like the colors though.

    Wasn't the term meant as an unapologetic denigration of such cyclists? If you don't want to be label such, then don't do it?

    I do love my neon wear but I'm careful not to over-do it. Perhaps a lime-green tee or burnt-orange shorts matched accordingly with simple white or black bottom/top. If I'm feeling particularly...

    It indeed looks like an A-bike... this video shows the similarities (and the way it rides - terribly). I think I'd be happier with a kick-scooter.

    Thanks guys for the useful info!

    One more simple question - would a front MTB tire + rear road tire be ride-able? Has anyone ever tried it before? My MTB will likely never be used for regular...

    The X20 and Jetstream are very different bikes. One is lightweight, sleek and fast, the other is heavy (ish), solidly built, and rugged. It's like choosing between a racer or an MTB.
