You are a prize clown!

The fact that bolts suffer from fatigue when over used is very relevant to the conversation.
Go find another band wagon to jump on.


Also living in a 21st century country gives you the ability to access the web even if you do lock yourself out.

Well gee... I dunno... heres a revelation - maybe some of us don't have the readies for two bikes and the associated costs! Two registrations, two insurance premiums, etc, etc. Or perhaps for some, its a space issue, with just enough room for one bike.

Which ever way you cut the numbers, a second set of wheels and tyres is going to be way cheaper than a second bike. If you commute on said bike I would rather have road tyres on it than dual purpose or knobbies. Swapping wheels and tyres is becoming an increasing trend with good reason.

Do you also avoid adjusting your chain because it means you have to loosen and then retighten the axle nut?

You don't adjust your chain on a weekly basis. So if you only go offroad as much as you adjust your chain, then you may as well just keep your road tyres on. As you are probably never going to do it in the wet anyway.

You only ride 1 bike at a time so the fuel costs are the same. You get a two bike insurance policy, which is only marginally dearer than a single bike policy, as they take in to account that you can only ride 1 at a time.
As for registration that's only a problem in your country, But I'm sure the money saved by buying two second hand bikes, and not buying a brand new set of wheels and tyres will cover that cost for a few years.

I've always enjoyed the practice of "I don't like what you're saying, you're opinion shouldn't count, only mine does, so I'm putting you on 'ignore'" myself.
