On ebay, somebody asked if those Roadtopista adaptors that I make are safe for brakeless riding.
I answered,yes they are safe , also for curb hopping, if well implemented, etc....
Then I have added:"However, do not ride brakeless! It is no longer cool. And if you break the chain (it happens sometimes) you are in major trouble."
The guy got pissed off and back answered like this:
" Right, so you take me for some trend following hipster **** correct? I ask a sensible question and you come back with that. Thanks for your time. "
I have apoligized to him, however what do you think?
1) I was totally wrong?
2) I was kind of wrong, but it is better to have evidence that you are not encouraging brakeless riding, especially if you are selling stuff to those people?
3) I was kind of right. Anybody asking for brakeless riding gets told, don't. BTW it is no longer cool in 2013...?
