I have decided that Cateye Stadiums are evil. This decision is based on the ability of the ballast to really scratch the hell out of expensive paintwork. Fortunately rothar.com stickers are the right shade of black and size to cover up light user ineptitude. It’s also partly based on the fact that they’re so bright. Any Scotchlite fabric ahead of you lights up like a Christams tree. I guess that means they can see you coming?
All considered however commuting is ace. I must admit I have become a bit of a centre line rider. Having danced with death on too many occassions riding in the gutter I now feel it’s better to ride the centre line to over take traffic and avoid being killed by people travelling in the same direction as you or turning left across you (trying to squeeze you out). the only thing to watch out for is on coming traffic. The stadium (not aimed at them) seems to let them know I’m inbound. The only problem with this technique are the loons trying to do u turns without signalling.
