Pedals vs. Saddles

Rather than doing a thread where we argue the merits of different versions of the same components, how about we argue the merits of totally different components?

I prefer pedals because once I got a seat stolen, and I was able to ride the bike to the LBS by standing up. I would have had to walk it if my pedals had gotten stolen.

I prefer seat because I can coast downhill with no pedals. Iíll fight anyone who thinks otherwise.

The idiocy of these faux debates is basically the point I was making. I think we're on page one zillion of doubles vs. triples.

Pedals because I once broke a seat post bolt and was able to ride standing up to a hardware store where I was able to purchase a stopgap solution, which is also why I like money.

How about combining technologies and be able to clip into our saddles and adjust crankarm lengths with flip of a lever?

Very much sucks. Especially if the pedals are (were) vintage Odyssey Shark Bites with purple ano'ed cages.

The funny thing is that it feels really odd to ride my handlebar setup without having a hand on it. While it feels natural on the setups that don't have one.

rims vs bearings?
