So I'm no retro grouch demanding regression to woolen underwear,
but the Vyron remote controlled seat post strikes me as over the top.
Think about it, this gidget will adjust the saddle height by remote control. Why? I read the article by Leonard Zinn. I still don't know why. I assume there are people willing to pay 3-500 dollars for a seat post which adjusts in motion for some reason other than his riding buddies don't have one.
We know it's a game changer (0 wires!!), but what game?Of course, I have the nerve to question electronic shifting and everybody knows it's the wave of the future. Anyway, I assume it is all part of the integrated improvement of cycling for the masses. Next we will get adjustable crank arms to automatically provide leverage for the terrain as we ride with our gear selection controlled by power meters adjusting for the pre-ordained route provided by Garmin,
to maximize the energy output we witness through our Recon Jet glasses
coordinated by a cell phone app which will also dictate our leisure time
eating habits to better develop and control our recreational output.
Or, just say screw it, ride our bikes around a bit and have a beer.
