    Very interesting...I'm guessing the ADA left out color-blindness. Of the various lights I have, which are from 3-4 brands, all have red/green indicators.

    Well yeah, a widely-accepted signal on its own can't be "arrogant", but the rider certainly displayed a high level of arrogance in giving the signal, since it totally violated etiquette (IMO, at...

    Did you actually examine the chainring to confirm, or are you just assuming it's worn out? Skipping and jamming could be the result of improper chain installation (if it's a directional chain...

    It takes a very conscious effort for me to not go all out, for sure. I usually arrive pretty sweaty, but if I ride at a relatively leisurely pace I can stay mostly dry.
