    Hi I'm Pete, and I like to ride my bike every day. This is my second year of FS. Most of my riding is commuting, often towing a 6-year old to school in a Weehoo on the way to work. I also have a...

    Indeed, let's keep it up. Here's a situation i can imagine using blinky mode on a headlight.

    A few weeks ago I was following another cyclist on N. Irving towards 50, maybe a block or two behind....

    I did this for awhile, now I use a combination of lights. For a steady mode, I like the battery powered B&M Toplight. It bolts to a rear rack and runs on one AA battery. I find that the battery...

    I would also favor pink, or some color other than orange or yellow/green, so that participants can more easily recognize each other.

    Yes, I see your point. I can see that speed limits are most practical on routes that simply bar certain types of transportation (e.g., no pedestrians walking down Wilson Blvd, no bicycles on the...

    I see you point, but I guess I'd say there are rules, and then there are norms. To me, the value in a speed limit sign is the norm that it communicates -- that it isn't OK to go as fast as you please...

    Apologies if this has been stated already, but "remove the point cap" refers to eliminating the limit on the number of "team points" an individual rider could contribute in a week, is that right? So...

    I don't agree. I'm not a hater. I've been riding here for 20 years. I think ebikes make speed limits a good idea. if we're going to allow vehicles capable of going nearly 30mph on MUPs, vehicles...

    Chris, like you, I'm just baffled by the need for different speed limits for various modes (scooter, e-bike, pedal bike) and settings (trail, street). What do you think is their reasoning for a such...

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm a bike person so I'm willing to drop $300 on a weatherproof cam that takes looping footage, but only if it's dependable, since I would be using it every day. I've...

    Bike camera recommendation?

    I saw a mention of bike cameras in a recent thread. I searched for the topic, but only found threads that went dormant years ago.

    I'm interested in a not-too expensive camera that won't go kaput...

    Yes, Peter White Cycles has them, and other online retailers do too. I use a B&M Ixon IQ, which is battery powered, and doesn't require a generator hub. It uses AA rechargeables, but you don't need...

    Yes, that was me. It's a Crust Clydesdale fork on a old budget Trek "mountain" bike. Unloaded, the handling is no different than a normal bike, just a little harsh because the fork is so stout. The...

    It'd be nice if it was harder to pick, but that still took effort and skill. Not a 5-second Bic pen job, a 4 minute, burglarious tools job.
