Why does this sound like spam I wonder?

comment How to store bicycles outside during winter
Look cool, but will it withstand heavy snow load? I've seen a really strong looking greenhouse being smashed flat by snow.

Why should a wall bracket be preferred over a floor bracket?

comment 24V Vs 36V Brushless DC HUB Motor For Electric Bike
Agreed. I guess the worst problem is with charge equalizing over the cells. And this might be a problem for a demanding application like a bicycle.

comment 24V Vs 36V Brushless DC HUB Motor For Electric Bike
Why would a battery be less efficient with higher voltage? It's just a bigger number of same low-voltage cells, isn't it?

comment How practical is an unicycle on uneven surfaces?
@moz: Well, a pedestrian can step over obstacles, while the unicycle has to roll over them.

comment Is pollution a problem in urban cycling?
+1, good question. On the page you link to the mask is black. One thing I don't get is: why the hell did they manufacture a black mask? Surely a person in a black mask looks inadequate. Meanwhile people wear white or light colours masks to protect themsevleas from infections (mostly flu) and noone screams - someone thinks those people overreact, but still noone perceives them as a threat. Maybe a light color mask will work better for you.

comment Arguments for/against bike lanes?
+1. "We need bike lanes as in major European/American cities" they say and throw a fortune on this task. However they usually don't have expertice to accompany that fortune and let money be used right.

comment What are the reasons for and against wearing a bicycle helmet?
Great, you've just sold death to me. However it'll not be that easy to sell medical equipment, complex medications and other stuff needed to heavily injured people (and stuff, alcohol and compulsive shopping included, used to relieve stress of their relatives) as "reducing ecological footprint".

I even signed up to comment on the "ecological impact" part. Do you really think that recovering injured people and burying those who didn't survive an accident has positive ecological impact outweighting helmet production negative?
