That's the thing, most people are not mechanically inclined. If I didn't know as much as I think I do my bike would be perma-parked.
The average non-mech-minded person can't be paying or pleading to fix their bikes all the time.
To keep these things running it pretty much has to be a hobby, whereas most people just want to get around and they don't bring tools with them which for me is mandatory.
But still, around here, most people have never seen them, people are rubber necking all the time.
Just a few days ago this old man pulled up beside me as I walked my disabled bike ( I chose to fix it at home with better tools) through the graveyard, he asked me questions and we talked about the bike for about a half hour!
At least here, they are still catching on.
