comment How can I fit 6 bikes on a hitch rack?
@jimirings a passenger vehicle seating 8-10 people would be somewhere between an MPV and a minibus. A 'van' is exclusively used in the UK for small commercial vehicles, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van, e.g. a Ford Transit

comment How can I interpret the intent of and respond to cars behind me honking?
@DanielRHicks you're not wrong, but I'm firmly of the opinion that you can only educate someone by standing up to them. While it might very well be the case that you might not want to educate them (or that they don't want to be educated), the only way the bad driver gets to learn he's bad is by being told - he won't work it out for himself.

comment Camera alternatives for commuting (2014 version)
60fps, absolutely, based on the consideration that if you're thinking about using the video evidence to submit footage or reports to the local police, or even just to name and shame on YouTube or Twitter, then 30fps (particularly if handlebar mounted) doesn't produce good still images. At 60fps (even if from a handlebar but definitely if helmet mounted) you stand a fighting chance of being able to produce legible images showing a good level of evidence of poor roadcraft.
