My bike is more "aggressive" than Emily's. Largely, this means it's less comfortable. ;^)
Scott is a bike evangelist now, but he used to not care. He has all the zealotry of a convert.
So what have we learned today, children? That Scott likes arguing with himself about things he doesn't understand about other people.
If I had space, I'd keep two bikes: a beater for normal riding and my nice hybrid for recreational/commute riding.Since I only have space for one bike, I signed up for Citibike.
Everywhere but work?
So what have we learned today, children? That Scott likes arguing with himself about things he doesn't understand about other people.We've learned that even if you are aware of confirmation bias and the Mere-exposure effect, they will still make you their victim. Even smart people will put things like "feelings" and "preferences" ahead of facts.
What exactly is the difference between normal riding and commute riding?
I'm gonna buy that Vanmoof just to see the size of Scott's hateboner when it works just fine for City Riding in Chicago.

A tricycle would work "just fine." If you wanted to, you could commute in NYC by horse. Old shitty technologies can still get jobs done. They're just way less efficient than what we have available. What next, going to forego smartphones for an Apple Newton?
Could I have the numbers on "way less efficient"? I'm not kidding. I'd really like to see how much energy I'm using compared to a derailleur version of the same bike.
