    Sorry, but I disagree. The bumper sticker (and headline) clearly implies that autonomous vehicles can eliminate all accidents. Apply the reasonable person standard.

    I've spent some of my career in autonomous vehicles and simulation.

    I'm extremely skeptical of their claims.

    IMHO, you may not need 36 spokes just because of your weight. I weigh about the same and have plenty of bikes with 32 spoke wheels.

    For spoke lubricant, I used motor oil. In theory, a properly...
