Random pointless ramblings. First itís dangerous to change gearing and now itís because one doesnít have the strength or endurance for stock gearing.

Why are cars outfitted with more gears these days? Why donít they just make more powerful motors?

Because efficient gearing for the terrain/speed/cadence you ride makes sense. You can use a single speed to ride the mountains, but that rider with ďno legsĒ but gears will catch and surpass you eventually.
