  1. Unlikely simultaneous historical events

    Some great stuff there. Also makes me think a site that just summarises interesting Reddit pages would be great (does it exist?) because I can’t be bothered to trawl through the source page itself for more examples.

  2. Vickers Roadster

    Rather nice British-made bike. A bit too retro though? The most modern looking thing are those mudguards, which look a bit too minimal…

  3. Minute is a pint-sized bike that’s perfectly designed for city cycling

    I’d really like an upright bike that looks like it was made in the 21st century. Not entirely sure this is it though. (via @agpublic)

    @dracos @pkqk Yeah, it's a joke I don't quite understand.

    @whoisdanw Yes, I keep reading it differently.But they don’t compare sharing before/after button introduction.Would be the interesting thing

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @whoisdanw And yet the data isn’t even about the buttons at all, but about sharing rates overall since the buttons’ introduction.

    @agpublic @felix_cohen Yup. ctc.org.uk/cyclists-libra… Why a lot of fixies have vestigial front brake levers.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @agpublic @felix_cohen Yes, but legally, it needs a front brake too.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @felix_cohen @agpublic Oh yes. Still needs a front brake though.

    @agpublic Am I missing something or does it have no brakes? cyclelove.net/2014/02/minute… An ad there also lead me to this vickersbicycles.co.uk/handmade-steel…

    @lesteph @simoneverest @tomskitomski Doesn’t this only show that not much was shared, not that sharing buttons make some/lots/no difference?

    NOT A SINGLE LINE OF THIS MEANS ANYTHING AT ALL
