BMX bikes don't have gearing that allows them to go 25 mph on flat ground
BMX bikes are easier to bail off of if their brake fails
People don't go on multiple "20-30 mile rides" on their BMX bikes every week


Claiming you ride a hundred miles a week doesn't help your case here. That just increases the probability that you'll have a brake failure, or forget to close the quick release, or encounter a situation where you want more than a front alone.


But anyway, I think the platforms are great for an around-town bike. Having bmx platforms doesn't really mesh with your claim of three 30 mile rides a week, but I don't really believe that anyway. If you rode that much, you'd have a second brake.


I think it's pretty, though.
