Human909 replied to Nigel's discussion Waterproof Cycling Pants
"so yes bare legs and sandals. Definitely agree with this for day long riding in wet conditions.  I own SPD sandals for this reason. :-) If the rain is very heavy you will get wet anyway, one way or another there will be a leak I disagree with…"

Human909 replied to Nigel's discussion Waterproof Cycling Pants
"Well the last ones I listed have all of that.  Except the comfortable seat.  But that is what your seat and your bike pants are for. Having padded rainproof cycling pants wouldn't be practical sensible.  These are OVERPANTs, made…"

Human909 replied to Nigel's discussion Waterproof Cycling Pants
"Why do they need to be cycling specific? I use these cheapies but goodies just fine.  Seam sealed but not breathable, very packable. 100% dry even in torrential rain.  I combine with waterproof shoes and I can stay dry and be presentable…"

Human909 replied to Bernard's discussion Artarmon Oval slippery corner on shared path
"Due to the unexpected nature of the slipperiness signage advice it as such would be helpful and may prevent further injuries.  It seems sensible hence my first comment. “Drive to the conditions” is all well and good, if not a bit of…"

Human909 replied to Bernard's discussion Artarmon Oval slippery corner on shared path
"A printer, a laminator and a few nails and you should be able to sort the signage out yourself. We want motorists to drive to the conditions even if the infrastructure isn't perfect.  Shouldn't the same be expect of cyclists? I have…"

Human909 replied to Bob Moore's discussion Tunnel Vision
"Was there ever a chance of a separate bike tunnel? Yep.  Simple, have one vehicle lane in each direction instead of the two eastbound.  Then there would have been plenty of room for nice bike lanes.I don't regularly ride that area but…"

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…"

Human909 replied to Bob Moore's discussion Safe rail crossing for cyclists.
"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…"

Human909 replied to PeterT's discussion How to by-pass a dynamo hub and link to battery instead?
"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…"
