Re: Reid Welch Returns (was Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !)

My cycling these days is manual pedalling of a regular, fixed gear bike at average 15MPH speeds. I weave and I dart in traffic, like a bicyclist should, IMO. Were I driving an ebike at high speeds: full helmet, por favor, is best, imo. But, as a pokey bi cyclist: no helmet for me. The cars are more ...

Re: Reid Welch Returns (was Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !)

They see you more as like an egg, an eggshell (which you are), and less like an adversary or competitor. The car driver sees the helmetless bicyclist as a risk to the car driver. "I will be held guilty." The bicyclist never had a chance, anyway, if it came down to an impact with a car at high speed....

Re: Reid Welch Returns (was Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !)

If you ride a bi cycle at auto speeds, please wear a full face cage, if you so please. Put your face in a cage helmet, to save you from 5,000 pound killers. Or, wear no helmet at all, in order to look and be as vulnerable as possible? I do. Car drivers really seem to treat me with more respect, more...

I have friends here. This is an update for my ES friends: I am making great money today as a self employed piano technician, my trade of over forty years. Thank you for looking after me back when I was hurting. Today, I am grand. Piano. Income. Home and hearth. My home of over 35 years remains healt...

Re: Reid Welch Returns (was Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !)

I DO NOT RIDE WITH A HELMET, dear friends. I cycle today with head unprotected. I do this for a reason. BTW, I met an ebiker named MARIO yesterday afternoon. Mario was sporting a 1999 EV Warrior he has revived with a new battery pack and expertise... CRASH: https://youtu.be/pwT0YA2OXhU CRASH: https:...

Hi Reid... As a pedestrian I was taught to Look Left, Look Right... Look Left Again? Maybe wanna throw an extra LOOK in there somewhere. :wink: A newly improved mnemonic. L.S.M.T.D.I.L.Y.A.S.T.L.F.O.N.M. Look, Signal, Merge, Turn, Damn It, Look, You Are Supposed To Look First, Oh, No, Mother.

Re: Reid Welch Returns (was Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !)

On to bikes. The Crosscurrent S is the best ready-built ebike value out there today. Strictly your opinion, care to elaborate? It is an opinion, but not just strictly my own. Compare features and prices of bikes spec'd like the CCS and the new fatbike brother of the CCS, the RipCurrent. Amazing wha...

Re: Reid Welch Returns (was Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !)

The CrossCurrent S is a great ready made ebike. Nothing Frankenstein about it. I am enjoying mine every day, customizing it, too! Here is a fresh YT video of mere fluff, but it is accurate. So, I will quote just one salient comment. [youtube][https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWhhcfJGQBs[/youtube] GUI...

Re: E.S. Quotable Quotes !

Is that really our Reid Welch? Back from another dimension? As entertaining as that might be, I'll believe it when he starts using the OLD account to post. Or would it be 'Back from prison?' The judge, the alleged victim's former city hall cohort, would not send me to prison (where I would have had...

I would not be able to recover the original account, anyway, having long ago lost that email account. Got a Juiced Bikes Crosscurrent S last month, enjoying the bike very much and also writing about it at EBR.
