In the Bike Shop: Eezox Cycle Tune-Up

cycle-tuneup-tn.jpg In the ongoing Bike Shop quest for the “best lube ever,” the legendary framebuilder Bill Davidson told me about Eezox Cycle Tune-Up yesterday. By way of the gun community, a truly obsessive corrosion review, and an observation that the Vashon Island hippies would love it, cause it’s not petroleum based. He’s thinking it’s an unknown, to-be-discovered miracle lube that, “is a unique synthetic high-tech formula that will prevent excessive wear and dirt pick-up because it goes on wet, and lubricates dry.”

That’s it I’m moving to Idaho

A person operating a bicycle or human-powered vehicle approaching a steady red traffic control light shall stop before entering the inter-section, and shall yield to all other traffic. Once the person has yielded, he may proceed through the steady red light with caution. Provided however, that a person after slowing to a reasonable speed and yielding the right-of-way if required may cautiously make a right-hand turn.”

This is brilliant. There are plenty of bike folk who behave as though this is the law in Seattle (I noted a couple of blatant red-light-runners on my way in this morning). As much as I hate stopping and waiting, it’s the law where I live. In Idaho they have it figured out: Treat all red-lights as YieldsĀ¯. No complete stop necessary, no waiting. Sure, if there’s traffic you wait, but how much quicker would your commute be if you never had to wait at an empty red light. Time to write my congressman. At 180lb some seriously wasted momentum!
