After gettting those new syntace bars, I decided not to attach a brake to them immediately (which turns out may not happen at all). I was leaving for a beer last night (not just an excuse to go for a ride) when my downstairs housemate catches me and says "Wow. you don't have any gears!" I smile and think to myself that she moved in 6 months ago and my bike has been locked to the banister in front of her door every night of those 6 months... and she never noticed? She then proceeds to tell me that I don't have brakes either, asking me "what do you do with that thing?" I respond "go fast" as I again try not to think about her SUV and her love of Bush.
I know there was another thread about getting noticed... I guess this one is more about not getting noticed. Anyone experience this?
