at least for a man's bicycle.

They got the design of bicycles backwards. It's boy's bikes that the the nut destroying bar across.

Or maybe no one remembers the one gear bikes that came in a girl's form (with the low bar for dresses).

When I was a kid, my first bike was one of those. I think Dad got it free. At least he repainted it, riding a girl's bike in pink would have been a bit much.

The first time I rode it on my own, a neighborhood bully tried to "play chicken" and force me down - the bikes did go down, but he was on bottom of the pile, both bikes next, and me, unhurt, on top.

So I resented having a girl's bicycle until I tried a boy's one and busted my nuts a few times... Then I slightly appreciated that I got the less painful design.
