Because if there is an angle someone finds to make a buck, they'll use it, and marketers figure out a way of convincing us we need it.

Used to be a time when a little grease under the fingernails was worn proudly, like a merit badge, or a symbol of passage. Nope, I can't see a reason to use one of those fancy stem-pullers. If you install your tubes and tires correctly, you'll never need them.
You can't be a poser if you don't have a bike. Does that mean I'm lower than a poser?
