"As long as it's waterproof having a sealed cable from the generator to a USB outlet somewhere higher on the bike is a great idea."

"Obviously the end goal here is for everyone (people in cars, on bikes, and walking) to act in a courteous and patient manner regarding other road users. The fact that this is not currently the case is the reasoning behind many education and advocacy…"

"Personally, I don't feel like I am having multiple bad days a week, and I am not sure where you are getting this feeling from. I'd say maybe once every other month or so. I get honked at more frequently, yes, but I don't really…"
