Thought #104

Dérailleurs allow for greater gear combinations and hence more effective speed. The more gears you have the greater the variety of terrain you can tackle without tiring out your legs.

But the chains get thinner, as do the spaces between the gears, and more maintenance is required, lest you introduce the chances of mechanicals.

Maybe I should just single-speed most things.
