Are you a budding comedy writer?

Because they forgot the harness and rope needed to drag the bike up after them. :rolleyes:
If so, Don't Quit Yer Day Job.
Geez, even the obvious answer "because they're there" is funnier. C'mon you can do better.

Not if you picture somebody draging their bike up a steep grade. It's hilarious.

Troll, much?

hmmm. many of my local, close to home trails, i can climb as fast on my SS as i can on my gearie. sometimes faster.

and when i'm doing it on the SS, i seem to pass an awful lot of people. and i'm riding the bike while doing so.

actually, that's true of a lot of trails i've been on with my SS; even when it's a trail not at home, or an unfamiliar one.

maybe you're just jealous? or weak?

Why do they ride uphill?

Same reason we all do, I suppose...

To try and find the magical gnome who lives at the top of every climb, that guards the horde of new bike parts, which he keeps hidden under a rock. You'll only see him if you are pure of heart, use biodegradable solvents to clean your chain, and never, ever shuttle.

Hmm, you wouldn't happen to be the dude that lives in my apartment complex who rides a crappy Walmart bike, who I pass uphill everytime I see you, would you?

Seriously, what is the point of your post?

I've decided gears are overrated

I hadn't been on any trail for 7 months due to a knee problem and today I finally got back on the dirt. Rode a local trail with a buddy of mine and for grins chose not to shift at all. Granted it's not the toughest trail in the world, but...

My new singulator, SS chainring, cog, and spacers should be in by the end of the week. I'm sold. That's it. Done. (=

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeasy there, people

Quasi made a funny, that's all. No need to toss disparaging remarks in his direction even if his jocularity didn't strike certain of us as exceptionally humorous.

Now if he'd said it to my face, I'd knock him down. ;)

Great call! I was thinking the same thing. Sure we SS'ers are able to pass lots of people on the climbs, but there are still a few gearies that are able to pass most all of us too.
Keep it humble people....keep it humble

Because SS'ers have NO respect for their knees!

I mean it's obvious man. On the up side SS'ers never bend deraileurs so ... :)
