This is what happens when a society encourages narcissism, and glorifies failure. It even happens here on BF.

I'm not arguing that they are the most "objectively utilitarian" bike, I'm refuting the claim that they less utilitarian than the bikes popular in North America.

Reality check.

Playing the martyr, and whining on BF will do nothing for my commute home today like appropriate equipment for my environment will.

Let's not be silly. ;)

I find it far more productive, and less stressful to make my decisions based on how things actually are, rather than how I think they should be when I head out the door to ride every day.

I don't understand why some insist on riding bikes unsuited for their environment, then complain about the required compromises and their results.
