With its lack of gears or suspension, the Dollar Bike radiates a quiet simplicity. No clicking of shifters, no drivetrain clatter or "squoosh" of suspension. Only the soft rumble of knobby tires on dirt trail. There are no gear decisions to be made - either you're in the correct one or, well you're in the correct one. It's been a long time since my bike of choice was one with no gears and no suspension, but it felt like coming home to ride one again. Since my biking has been a bit sporadic over the past few years, we started out with a relatively easy gear on this 29er at 33x20.
