"Isn't this the same state that is proposing a universal ban on bicycles in ANY tunnel!?"

Human909 replied to Bob Moore's discussion Safe rail crossing for cyclists.
"It does look like an added safety improvement.  But given the cost in installation, maintenance and some decreased efficiency of the trams the likelihood of it being implemented across the board pretty much ZERO.  Implemented in key…"

"I think an educational tour to Amsterdam is in order. (Or Melbourne if your Amsterdam is a little too far.) Tram tracks are a hazard.  But they are predictable and can be safe with some care and basic skills."

Human909 replied to Dabba's discussion It was all Mike Hall's fault that he was killed
"The coroner was shown the video.  The police had seen it until preparation for the coronial inquest. As per Cycle.org: Day 1 of the Mike Hall Coronial Inquest  The first day of the inquest proceeded mostly as expected: Counsel…"

Human909 replied to Dabba's discussion It was all Mike Hall's fault that he was killed
"It really boggles the mind. Surely it is the responsibility of drivers not to run into other things on the road. I wonder what would the police response had it been one of their own. "Police re-creations showed the bike was "virtually…"

Human909 replied to PeterT's discussion How to by-pass a dynamo hub and link to battery instead?
"My understanding and my brief googling is that almost all bicycle 'dynamos'  are AC.An AC producing "dynamo" is a just simpler and more efficient to make use and maintain.  At those low wattages it is simple, cheap and…"

"Dabba: "I don't know where you got your button battery info from. I looked for the battery details and couldn't find any." It is literally in the third line of the specifications in the link YOU provided.: Specification: Item…"

Human909 replied to PeterT's discussion How to by-pass a dynamo hub and link to battery instead?
"So a $4 LED 3000 lumens light and battery doesn't cut the mustard? :-) Comments like this make me wonder whether you have ever ridden a bicycle at night before. -a.  That isn't 3000 lumens of usable light. -b  Any light that…"

"Before you completely abandon things see whether you can do a simple bulb replacement. Like Scientia said earlier.  Halogens use much more power.  Normally about 5 times more than LED. Now not all bulbs will be available in LED…"

"The conversion isn't that complicated to get a 6V battery involved. Waterproofing really isnt needed for 6V apart from rusting.  But covering exposed connections would be smart it would be a good ideal. mAh ratings and length of time all…"

Human909 replied to PeterT's discussion How to by-pass a dynamo hub and link to battery instead?
"True.  The 1% claims I made were based on lights off, higher speeds and on time. If you have a powerful set of lights and are just riding at a more moderate speed then the percentage of total energy does increase.  10-15% is entirely…"

"I hope I'm not being a pain. But before you take the plunge you should recognize what is an issue and what isn't. To be honest I think my wheel is even worse than what the videos show esp when the lights are engaged. I'd already sent…"
