It is impossible to drink a gallon of milk in an hour.

I have done so.

Therefore, I can do the impossible.

@JFA I also think that it's an interesting question. That's why I recommended moving to chat rather than simply voting to close. I just think it's too open ended and subjective for the SE format. "What bicycle should I get?" questions are almost always always closed. Perhaps I'm wrong though. That's why we have the voting system. Anyway, this exchange about what constitutes a good question is getting long and would also be better continued in Meta or chat.

Thanks! I've definitely experienced that (and probably unwittingly done it too) but never knew there was a name for it.

@JFA I don't think that the rant is the only problem with it. It's fairly open-ended and subjective. If you take a look at the descriptions of a constructive subjective questions on that same dont-ask page you'll see that it doesn't really fit. That's not to say it's not an interesting question. I actually find it very intriguing. I just think that the chat room would be a much better venue for it. Anyway, I've voted to close. It's in the hands of the community now.

I've never heard the term "half-wheel". Could you explain it?

This question feels like a "rant in disguise" to me and might be better discussed in The Velodrome.
