James Mahon replied to Sir Mark's discussion Yet another Cyclist Killed - Vale
"Yes she got bail on $10,000 surety. In contrast the man who is alleged to have caused the M4 fatality did not get bail (from what I have read). It seems inconsistent but for the fact that this lady got herself a good lawyer and her story straight…"

James Mahon replied to Sir Mark's discussion Yet another Cyclist Killed - Vale
"If this is the spot marked on the map there is a clearly marked raised pedestrian crossing. I roll past there quite often with my youngster and we have plenty of motorists fail to giveway. So sad, so unnecessary and so callous. JM"

"Hi Bob - It has been reported today that she has passed away. Had a light truck all over my rear wheel this morning, descending into Bondi at 60+ km/h and he was struggling to hold my wheel but still just had to pass... he passed dangerously, and…"

James Mahon replied to Jonathon Troy's discussion Thinking about the super commuter
"Cyclocross bikes are heavy and geared for cyclocross - I would tend towards an endurance road bike for those two reasons. Most endurance bikes will take a wider tyre, and I thinks ome will take a rack - just make sure it has rack mounts. If you get…"

James Mahon replied to JoshS's discussion Brake pads in the rain
"Hi JoshS The Mavic Exalith rims are ribbed/grooved and when braking in the wet you get vibrations fed back to the brake levers and not a lot of stopping power. In the dry they are magic. The other down side is if you crack a carbon spoke (and I…"

James Mahon replied to JoshS's discussion Brake pads in the rain
"Some rims work better than others in the wet too.... I changed Mavic (Exalith) out for Shimano (Dure Ace) and the improvement was huge. I was on the brink of going disc but now there is just no need. JM"
