Changing gears with your mind

So a team of morons decided it was a great idea to invent a bike you can change gears with your mind. A couple of questions:

1. Don't we already do that? Just faster and better using our own hands?
2. Why in the hell did anyone bother designing this piece of crap?
3. Now we can change gears with our minds, yet we still have to use derailleurs? WTF!

Before riding while using its mind-reading capabilities, a cyclist needs to train the bike to read his mind. Its thought sensitive helmet picks up brain waves, which are transmitted to the bicycle's brain-controlled electronic "neurotransmission. "

The cyclist acquaints brain with bike by practicing with an experimental iPhone app, moving a cube on its screen until the neural technology associates that thought with the neurotransmission. Once the link is made, all the cyclist has to do is think in that way and the bike's gears will shift accordingly.
