    Yes, but discussions on this forum can go on for years after that point has been reached!

    For a minute there I thought I had clicked on my ArlNow bookmark by mistake.

    Because of the awesomeness of the Forum software, this is actually rather difficult. I have adjusted my settings such that I don't even have a page 10 on this thread, so the link does not work. Doing a search on "ljw" returns no results.

    morning.

    I hope you can take solace in the fact that a light much brighter than mine will soon be rising above the horizon at the same time as your commute. It would only be prudent to curse at the low-angle glaring sun, too.)

    You posted about your settings some time ago, and I liked what you did, so I made mine the same. It doesn't help in situations like this, when the link is by page (links by post number work, though, for all you link-makers). For the purpose of this thread, though, the post you were looking for was only one page back. Just sayin'.

If people would mount the lights low instead of high (helmet lights are the worst) they could have brighter lights and everyone benefits from the lighted trail. One doesn't rely solely on the light from ones own lamp but all ambient light so hiding one's light to rely on the opposing traffic providing light is less light for all.
    They're doing it wrong. One should uncover/reorient their light after going by - otherwise what would be the point?

    FTR, I've never had trouble getting by for a few meters on the light from streetlamps, etc. supplementing the peripheral shine from my own light (which I swivel to face the side of the rail instead of covering, because I can).

    I had no idea! I looked for a way to link directly to the post but couldn't quickly find one.

    Each post has a number in the upper right hand corner; that number is also a link. Copy the link. For example, here's the link for your last post: http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...830#post155830

    NTFU

    Namaste the f--k up!

    For use when HTFU fails to embody the desired state of spiritual enlightenment. See also: Channeling your inner Dirt.

    Example:

    Flustered Forumite:
    "Can you believe some guy in spandex trying to be Lance Hamstrung rode right behind me on the MUP and didn't say a word! I think he was trying to draft me!!! The nerve!!!"

    Resplendently Unaggressive Rider response:
    "NTFU!"

    I can get behind NTFU.
    But...gotta say it...if you are on a geared bike and need to draft me on my fixie, a little HTFU may be in order.
