Landrider Infomercial bashing regular bikes.
Safer? It looks more dangerous to me it will make you a lazier rider, it doesn't allow a proper riding position, harder on the back.
The general perception is that 21 gears are better than 10 or 15 - and now you can even find bikes with 24 or 28 speeds! The fact is that many of these gears are duplicates.
They should check again, they are not the same.
It comes equipped with 2-inch wide all-terrain tires that have a center ridge for low friction road travel and side tread for off-road trails.
Semi-Slicks basically, at least they can get the terminology correct, but they don't.
That's just stuff from they're website. On the infomercial, they show one of their bikes flying up a hill, but the person on the road bike has one hand by the stem and the other one on the drops. They claim gearing distracts you; how can that be? You should be able to know what gear from the feel while pedalling. Faster braking, isn't true, when you're in a proper form there should always be one or two fingers on the brake lever, braking is just as quick, maybee a little quicker even. Back to the going quicker up a hill, because of the riding position of a landrider, it looks like on a steeper hill, you will go over backwards because of the riding position, where with a regular bike a proper position would not allow that to happen as easily. It seems like the makers of Landrider chopped some corners with research. Not to mention after a certain amount of miles or you live in a really hilly area, the system could burn out somewhat quickly.
