comment Why are there almost no bikes with a single chainring?
And in addition to the range, more gears also gives you more fine adjustments in varying your mechanical advantage.

comment Why are there almost no bikes with a single chainring?
I think that the argument "in western society, more is always and without question better" is an oversimplification. For many people, a bike with 21 gears truly is better than a bike with 9 gears. Sure, some people make mindless purchasing decisions, but there are usually more compelling rational arguments for explaining product availability.

comment What's the difference between a Gran Fondo and an Étape?
This is a good answer. Just to clarify, in the U.S. a "century" is 100 miles, and a "metric century" is 100 kilometers.
