The question is: which end do you peel from?

Two votes but one photo? More evidence polls canít be trusted. This is the most banana bike I have. Oh, and Moots.

There's no dignified way to eat a banana in public, especially if you're female.

Bananas are awesome! I peel them like a monkey from the non-stem end. I eat a banana every day at breakfast.

That is the way I eat them on my bike. Bite the non-stem end and peal with my mouth. Learned that years ago at a forum for the Seattle to Portland bike ride. Works a trick.

Bananas?
Not on a ride. The peels are too messy and start to smell in brief time

Are we talking bananas with a little tinge of green on the edges of the peel or little brown spots all over?
