    Cyclist has probably seen any pedestrians crossing through stopped traffic like that before. He should have anticipated it here instead of riding like a self-absorbed idiot.

    So true. Unfortunately close calls frequently don't reinforce hazardous behaviour as much as they should. It's a human tendency to underestimate how close it was and how bad it could have been. ...

    There is no way that I could see a 1 mm difference in length and could see myself making the same error. Best to segregate the batches of spokes since you would normally lace on side at a time.
