    For others reading, the ixon iq premium has the same kind of beam shape, but is 50% brighter. (And is also bigger.) I find that one's bright enough, but I still keep a helmet light for backup and as...

    "Questionable etiquette" is a key phrase here. Among some it's become important to be seen dramatically taking action to fiddle with a headlight. These people get angry if they can't see someone...

    The problem I see here is that a couple of dozen posts ago someone proposed a couple of hypotheticals, and some people are supporting one and some people are arguing against the other, leading to an...

    Yes and no. It's legal to be in the street, but it's also required by law to have a reflector and/or lights.

    Bikes come with reflectors; if people decide they're too cool for the reflectors and rip them off...well, they've made their choice. Equipping cars with a strobe just outside the visual spectrum that...

    I'd forgotten about Courtland Milloy and the WaPo-sanctioned anti-bike screed, could have let that memory lie. The one-night-stand bike recovery question, OTOH, was pure gold.
