Making cycling safer I am glad someone has invented this.

This is fucking awesome.

hey guys this is really super important for bikers (some of which are my dad and uncle, both of whom tell me about how few fucks drivers give for bikers. one went out of its way to hit my uncle) and they have a kickstarter!! it’s in the article in the link above again this is so super important 

Frankly, that’s a really bad idea.
It discourage people from looking behind before performing the maneuvers, become more reliance on technology and make no difference whatsoever, why would a driver suddenly obeyed a rucksack with little light flashing over a proper hand signal manoverve? 
If you need to change lane, look behind while sticking your arm out fully (like a drama queen), take the lane more and perform the maneuver, sticking your arm out is much more noticeable than a rucksack with an indicator, and the habit force you to look behind before signalling.
If there’s no vehicles behind, DON’T SIGNAL, this enforce your habit in looking before signalling.
Be more assertive, people are not out to get you. jaimelann:

Q

kisspascool asked:

Hi ! I like your bikes ;) As you seem wiser and wiser about positioning on the bike : I just bought a Berthoud saddle (Aspin); how do you set up yours ? Is it supposed to be perfectly horizontal or do you prefer when it points slightly upwards ? I set up mine slightly upwards to sit comfortably but it makes me struggle with the curve of my lower back. What are your thoughts about that ? Thanks !

A

There are many factor than just setting the angle of the saddle, your saddle should support you well, without it feeling like you’re sliding forward onto the handlebar putting a lots of your body weight on it.

It sound like you got the angle right, the next part is the fore and aft position that’ll help with your back, but from what it sound, I guess setting it a little bit further back should help.

If it make it worse, try setting it slightly forward (but not too much that, like the angle of the saddle, put too much of your body weight onto the handlebar).

Once you got the saddle to bottom bracket distance and angle sorted, then you can concentrate on what stem length to go for.

It’s quite difficult to explain generally, Steve Hogg is the man to go to when it come to bicycle fitting, so his article, hopefully should make slightly more sense;

Seat Setback: For Road Bikes

Hope this help.

While I already have a dream bike with mudguard, dynamo, rack, etc. for all sort of occasion, I would love to own a Geekhouse much like this for ultralight touring using the bikepacking method, it even got my favourite tyres as well.
