[below]=cultural variation of ethical relativism... Though it's not too "velo" related. Also a bit eery since I recently had this on the brain --> http://www.damninteresting.com/the-great-taste-of-human-flesh-witho...

Morality is the custom of one's country and the current feeling of one's peers. Cannibalism is moral in a cannibal country. -Samuel Butler, writer (1835-1902)

Statistical:
Almost every bike ride less than one hour is done riding my mountain bike in proportion to my hybrid. I never ride less than one hour on the weekends. Therefore my mountain bike gets little to no use on the weekends.

Correction just in case,

Deductive: I cannot both bike on my fixie and my hybrid at the same time. I am not on my hybrid right now [but I am biking], so I must therefore be riding on my fixie.

Bob, correct me if I am wrong but a Deductive Syllogism require no real world rational to make it correct all they need is to be logically recursive.

From Spencer: "Deductive: I cannot both ride my fixie and my hybrid at the same time. I am not riding on my hybrid right now now, so I must therefore be riding on my fixie. "

Inconsistent. There's no statement that you're riding ANYTHING. Alternately, you may be RIDING in a car instead of DRIVING a bicycle.

brilliant!

If cycling is exhilarating and good for one's mental/physical health, then it is both fun and practical, respectively.
If cycling is both fun and practical, then it is a desired mode of transportation.
Cycling is exhilarating.
Cycling is conducive to one's mental/physical health.
Ergo, cycling is a desired mode of transportation.
