Is it just easier to get in my car? Do I have too much stuff to take? Do I not know where I left my bike lock? Are my brakes not working? Just trying to look at bike from the perspective of it’s got all those things solved as much of the time as possible. I know there’s a lot of bike companies that are working in that direction, so one of our goals is to review bikes and say how close do they come to this ideal.
