Rod Munro replied to Savvas's discussion South Road Bike-Overpass Now Open!
"Of course. Mine too ;-) Yes it looks like a BBSHD from the size and the chainring. 400 gram instant weight loss when you lose the discus. Here's one I prepared earlier on e-bikes. https://reneweconomy.com.au/the-quiet-e-bike-revolution-84526/"

"The motor is there to help our old legs. BBSHD? Time to lose that chainring though. Maybe a Lekkie blingring for Xmas."

Rod Munro replied to Savvas's discussion South Road Bike-Overpass Now Open!
"Love the long haul with the bafang mid drive. Oh and the bridge is pretty cool too. I'm ashamed I haven't followed this story but as the Linear park is closed for a while under South Rd I've investigated the Outer Harbour Greenway and…"

Rod Munro replied to heather's discussion shared paths
"If I did use the airzound it would have been after a couple of ignored rings but I agree, no need to be aggressive. When I first used the linear park (when the OBahn was built) I used to ring a bell but always seemed to spook the peds and they…"

"Yes, I ran out of real estate on the cockpit and everytime I went to use it, it was low on air pressure. Agreed, in an emergency, there are a lot of other priorities."

Rod Munro replied to heather's discussion shared paths
"LOL. I use to have an air zound. Much easier to lug around."

"Also, the higher registers are the first to go as we age. The elderly are more likely to hear a horn than a high pitched ring. Although, I seem to have far fewer dramas now I have a LOUD bell."

Rod Munro replied to Simpson's discussion Don't forget you are invisible
"They are popular to cyclists due to cyclists perceiving them to be safer. There is proof that flashing lights are picked up sooner but they can make it harder for drivers to judge speed and distance. There is also proof that in the wet (poor driver…"

Rod Munro replied to Simpson's discussion Don't forget you are invisible
"I hope you don't use the same approach with tail lights. There is a reason they are so popular."

Rod Munro replied to Simpson's discussion Don't forget you are invisible
"Flat bars on their own can be a bit tiresome. I use padded, medium length bar extensions and also use bar grips with the extra palm area. This gives multiple hand positions and enables a flatter back when a bit more speed or aero position is…"

Rod Munro replied to Simpson's discussion Don't forget you are invisible
"Well avoided sir. Is one of your front lights a flasher? I use a very bright torch with flash mode night and day and see many drivers respond to it as they instantly recognise a cyclist. Also, unless you are training for racing, a decent flat bar…"

Rod Munro replied to Savvas's discussion Linear Pathway Update (22nd Feb)
"Thanks for the update on the South Rd underpass, I should go for a ride to check but IMHO the installed bump rails on the fencing pose more risk than the protection they are offering. If they are to remain, could they have some flouro tape or…"

Rod Munro replied to Simpson's discussion Advertiser story motorists and cyclists
"I went with the copper. Paid for freight from the US coz I couldn't get one in Oz. It gets a good workout on the linear park and seems to be holding up well."

"I've not heard of lux but highly recommend this bell. I think they can even hear me through over ear…"

"LOL, I thought I was the only nutter who uses a HRM on an ebike. I think the assumption is ebike riders aren't exercising."
