I can't tell you how many people ask me why my bike doesn't have any brakes. How many peple tell me I'm stupid for only having one gear.
So I tell them, it's a fixed gear bicycle. They give me a confused look. You know, one gear, no coasting. "No coasting?!" Why would you only want one gear?
So what I say is "Because its my gear."
Do you guys have any better sayings to get people to understand?
