"My Surly isn't bad tempered at all, though the late lamented Salsa was certainly quite saucy."

mal replied to Michael O'Reilly's discussion Gong ride...
"I did see him at the start, but he didn't look like he was riding, he was wearing civvies. Couldn't see whether he was wheeling a bike, he was too far away."

mal replied to Daniel S's discussion Do we really want to increase cycling in Sydney?
"Yep, big ho and hum to this post. There's just something that I find to be innately cheerful about seeing someone on a bike, and I want more of it."

mal commented on Dan's blog post Of gears, panniers and fitness...
"Hey! That's my bike! :) And a damn nice bike it is too. I have had a few people ask what mine is, I usually just call it a light tourer, but I think Salsa designed it as a randonneuring bike. Either way, it's very comfortable and fast…"

mal replied to Terry's discussion spring cycle....What an unfun day on a bike
"I really enjoyed the ride. Admittedly we left from North Sydney at 7, so i think avoided most of the congestion issues. There are certainly some choke points in the route that should be reconsidered. The wind sucked, but it also kept the temperature…"

"The Cannondale was on display this morning in all its glory. And very fine it was too."

mal replied to Peter's discussion Bourke Road, Mandible and Bowden Street - Cycleway Construction - Initial Maintenance work
"That's fine until you get through Price Alfred park, then you hit Chalmers/Elizabeth which are no more friendly than Oxford St. I'm quite happy to ride down Elizabeth by myself now (though I usually do it in a small group on the bike bus)…"

mal replied to Jo Jones's discussion BikeLove radio seeking interviees... subject Magpies
"I'd care about magpies on a bike. They're scary enough when they're flying."

mal commented on BikeSaint's blog post The search for the "beautiful bicycle"
"Hurray Fiona! The bike looks beautiful. It will be odd seeing you on a proper bike though :). And I still think you should have got a fixie. (aka bike-bus Andrew)"

mal replied to baa baa's discussion Red Light Runners- The Demographic Drill Down
"If a pedestrian darts out onto the road into your path and you hit them, who caused the accident? You might cause more damage to them (though with a pike/pedestrian accident, that probably depends on the luck of the draw) but I'd argue that the…"

mal replied to baa baa's discussion Red Light Runners- The Demographic Drill Down
"I thought that might have been the ATSB report that was being referred to. The 60% stat is unfortunate, because once a figure like that starts circulating in the media, then it becomes accepted truth and is quoted forever more, without…"

mal replied to BikeSaint's discussion Draconian State Rail and bike parking
"That was Leaping Leo Mcleay wasn't it? Googling tells me that he fell off a bike hired from Parliament House and caused himself an injury, which won him $65,000 dollars. Not sure why I can remember that, and not useful information."

"Where did you end up sourcing the Keens from?"

mal replied to Michael O'Reilly's discussion Fluoro clothing - seriously
"Just following up, having thought a little more, the arguments against fluoro don't seem to me to be arguments against wearing fluoro per se, rather that you shouldn't rely on it as your only mechanism for increasing visibility. So…"

mal replied to Michael O'Reilly's discussion Fluoro clothing - seriously
"It's possible that there are confounding factors with any study, but a quick search with Google scholar certainly turns up a lot of papers that seem to argue that visibility is enhanced by wearing fluoro, and not all are directly related to…"

mal replied to Peter H's discussion I'd just like to say thanks
"Ha, loooooxury. Wwhen I was a lad, anyone who dreamed of Juzz bunds was whipped with barbed wire and made to eat rhubarb."
