# The Last Stop

Re: The Last Stop

When this thing goes into production, I hope that
gear ratios other than 1.5:1 will be considered.
The problem with gear ratios that end in .0 or
…5 is that you will get two bald spots on your
tires, whereas other gear ratios will spread
the wear out over the entire tire.

Re: Re: The Last Stop

A good point. Ideally, with a gear ratio of n+0.5, an ambidextrous, or ambipedal rider would produce four bald spots on a tire. Frank Bonsch’s 1.57 hub would produce a uniform wear pattern on a tire.

But it was the fact that he wrote “kilometers” rather than the correct* spelling of “kilometres” that John was noting.

Here is what is in my dictionary:
kil·o·me·ter n. Abbr. km A metric unit of length equal to 1,000 meters (0.62 mile).

The good old Oxford English Dictionary says “kilometre”…

Worn tires are like old trophies.

Hmm… as far as one can get to know someone through his posts only.
I’ve also got this feeling I know the regulars in here, though I’ve
only met one poster in person (Leo Vandewoestijne).

Oops, one instance of U.S. English (sic) spelling slipped through. Do
I have to apologise or apologize?

This is not a nerdy difference. The discussion is about finesses such
as average speeds of 14.5 versus 15 MPH.
