Should we just settle on calling it the safety bicycle?
If you Google it, there's a sizeable proportion of people who call it the diamond frame, the double diamond frame, and the double triangle...

And if you never look to your side, aren't you asking for trouble at intersections? Guess we could have a verbal fight between the "always look ahead" people with the "head always on a swivel"...

This thread isn't about you or me. OP finds it useful, and telling OP they lack "common sense" because they find it useful is a useless condescending comment on your part.

OP is adapting by taking...

This is what is wrong with your entire "you should" approach to this thread--OP isn't going to be going 25 mph in a group ride, they're riding a recumbent and are more concerned with being in the...

So wait, is the feeling in the legs and lungs the same as knowing your speed or is it much different? What the hell are you talking about?

Pretty sure you've complicated this so much you can't...

Nahh, I think this is more of a put-down status thing, telling people their legs are stupid or something.

Here's where you all go off the beam. I don't use them, but I don't think I or anyone else is qualified to tell someone who finds them useful that they shouldn't. Why should any individual rider...

I propose Lycrasplaining as the term for "real cyclists don't..." type of correction.
