Pet Peeve: Bicycle Design
Why are men’s bike designed with a horizontal cross bar and women’s have the slanted cross bar?
If a man slips on his bike he will feel a lot of pain if he gets his goods smashed on the crossbar. Wouldn’t it make more sense for men to have the slanted crossbar design?
The only reason I can gather is that bicyles were designed under the assumption that women are too weak to lift their legs above a crossbar, or too modest, wearing a skirt and all.
Get with the times!
