    Saw a guy on the train last night. Obviously a commuter from the kit he had on his trek.
    Here is a list of what I saw on him/bike
    No less than 4 cameras, air horns (2), more lights than I could count front and rear, seat bag Bum bag rucsack,bottlecages one of which had a big battery pack in for all his lights/cameras. And he then had another camera on his helmet along with more lights front and back!
    Then once he had got on my train he produced a laptop from his bag plugged all the .sd cards from his cameras into yet another gizmo and watched his commute back(from 5 different angles)

    Is it me is that too much ?
    This guy must have spent some serious cash getting set up so maybe I am just jealous :smile:

    I think he needs to forget about what the world is doing and enjoy his riding! That sounds like a huge amount of OCD to me

    Threr are gadget freaks and oddballs in all walks of life I s'pose. Bit like the mods in the sixties with mirrors on their scooters. If you asked him he'd reckon it was all vital. Hey Ho, each to his own

  6. Maybe he's not a cyclist with a lot of cameras, maybe he is a film maker who uses a bicycle?

    Just as Mikey says, it is SonoftheWindsInc or Traffic Droid that you have seen.

    You should have just said a passing "hello" and then he would have put a video of you on Youtube.

    I think you need to think a bit before you make posts like that. :wacko:

    I'm hoping it was an innocent mistake and not a deliberate attempt to start up another argument :stop:
