Simple or Complicated?
I'm in a mood to categorize bicycles. Two categories: simple and complicated.
Where does your favorite bike fit?
I don't have a favorite bike, but the one I ride every day is complicated: gears, fenders, rack, lights, bag. I keep forgetting to add the handlebar bell.
I have a couple of simple bikes, but I keep trying to make them more complicated by adding stuff.
I've had several single speed bikes, but they always lack something for me. I appreciate that many riders love singles and get along with them better than complex bikes. That's great and I admire it.
I want at least a few gears. I want some fenders. I think lights are really important in the dark. I like a rack or bag to carry things. Next thing you know, I've got a complicated bike. I guess that's just the way I am.
