Dave M replied to Dahondude's discussion Marino Rocks Greenway changes at corner East Ave and Cromer Parade
"I don't see that issue. The moment that the front of a car exits Cromer Pde it becomes traffic on East Ave, so the cyclist would have to give way to it before entering the road safely.  A give way sign on the cycle exit could clarify this…"

Dave M replied to Dahondude's discussion Marino Rocks Greenway changes at corner East Ave and Cromer Parade
"The key with the current layout was that there is a stop line marked out on Cromer Pde side, which traffic (including cyclists) may not pass over while the lights are activated. The new layout will have a single stop line on East Ave which will come…"

Dave M replied to Peter B's discussion "Beg button" frustrations at cycle crossings
"The conflict with the left turn does apply to the cemetery entrance, and providing a red light for the left turn to have the crossing clear isn't an option because the left turn doesn't have a filter lane. The phase length issue applies at…"

"That's not a problem with Campagnolo, that's a problem with simply having the wrong chainrings and cassette fitted. It's a relatively simple job to swap these over, I did so on my bike in my own lounge room. Modern Campagnolo…"

Dave M replied to Peter B's discussion "Beg button" frustrations at cycle crossings
"Crossings don't go green by default for one (or both) of two reasons. The first is that many junctions have phase lengths too short for the pedestrian crossing to be used, and so pressing the button lengthens the phase to fit in the required…"

"Veloce is only 10 speeds, and would be about the equivalent of old 10-speed Shimano 105 so a step back compared to both your Ultegra bike and your old Centaur bike. To get similar performance to both of your old bikes I would suggest going for at…"

Bill Gehling replied to Dave M's discussion Mike Turtur Bikeway: South Road overpass closed
"Point well made David, but I think their problems go deeper than that. The organisational structure means that policy and operations fall into separate silos, so no-one can do anything significant without involving the whole hierarchy. As a…"

Hi Dave. Sorry, I did not notice your message until today. I'm not that techno savvy.

Thank you kindly for the offer but the tyres on my bike are 25 mm. Because I use it for recreation and commute, the cycle shop advised me to go a bit wider to deal with uneven road surfaces. Seems to work.

Thanks for your advice and input to the thread.

regards Rob (Simpson)
