This isn't complicated. 2020 is a referendum on Trump.

Why do men's bikes have that annoying horizontal bar

Why do men's bikes have that annoying horizontal bar

It would seem to me that men & boys wouldn't want that extra bar
in case of slipping or falling. I doubt women & girls would enjoy falling
on it either.


What actually is the case though, is bikes were designed with that bar.
Bikes for females had that bar removed, because back in the day
they wore dresses. Having the horizontal bar made getting on the
bicycle a little scandalous.

The whole thing is a moot point in modern day society,
because what girl is going bike riding in a dress?

You had to look that up?

BTW, when the bar is removed for girl's bikes - the frame is not as stable and more likely to bend out of shape in the event of an accident.

Yes, the bar does add stability. It talks about this on the webpage I listed.

Yes. I imagine your family having skills like being able to clean a horse stall, trimming hedges, fixing problems with the sewer...

Yes, and men like me come to your house to fix things & wind up banging your wife. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Luck for you, I guess, that you're not married. (Big surprise there.)

America is plagued with an epidemic
of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
D-K affects nearly every family.

You have to know, the real Dunning-Kruger
effects fake liberals to make them
think that they know everything.
No matter how many facts you
show them, they don't learn or accept.

Too many people are brainwashed into
believing their political party is benevolent.
While both are deep state knights & pawns.

We need outsiders like Donald Trump.

Do not confuse the Dunning-Kruger Effect
with the Dumb-Krueger Effect, started by
pseudo-psychologist to attack MAGAites.

The cure for Dumb-Krueger is knowlege!
May the facts be with you.
