comment Safety data: Which is safer, head/tail lights which blink or emit a steady beam?
@gaurwraith That's really silly, and bad advice founded on nothing. You'd rather be less visible to every single driver on the road all the time, on the off chance that somebody will experience target fixation? Do you honestly think that makes you safer? What if the numbers came out that for every driver who experiences target fixation, a hundred other drivers never saw you to begin with? Just "google it, it's a thing" is not enough to actually form an opinion on.

comment What are the pros and cons of internal gears?
@Mac That's not really a fair or relevant comparison. Of course your fixie is lighter than a bike with gears. It doesn't matter if those gears are internal or not.

@Uwe Last time I checked, mopeds and motorcycles aren't running a single tiny LED with a 9 volt battery for a headlight.
