I’m not saying that today’s bikes are absolutely perfect. Literal perfection in such a complex machine isn’t possible. But when fit, finish, quality, reliability, and performance are as good as they are now, perfection is at least approached. And while many of us might consider perfection the ultimate goal, I want to suggest there might be some lurking problems or hidden dangers in our pursuit of perfection. Could we be missing something when the products we buy are already so good?
