Been cruising around a bit, seen a few guys brakeless. Cops don't seem to mind either, if they say anything i'll just pull the brit abroad card. First experiences, i'd say Sydney is at least 10-15 years behind Europe and North America in terms of attitudes to bikes. It's fine if you're happy just cruising about on little bike paths and not in any great hurry, riding in London although way more hectic and more cabbies actively trying to kill you. Its was better, it just works. It seems that they want to view bikes as cars but still say "ride a bike, but you will be marginalised". It isn't encouraging people to ride at all, I see loads of folk with bikes loaded on cars taking them out the city.
