HOward Darr asked what a 14-18-30-32-34 Suntour ProCompe would be for.

Peering deeply into the abcesses of my brain, here are two not entirely implausible SWAGs:*

1) Guy lived in a place like NE PA where the roads are all steep, either up or down, and wanted a 5-speed. 14 for down-hill, 18 for the rare exceptions, and the grunters for various stages of exhaustion climbing.

2) It ain't even screwed down tight. Jokester just put 'em on to see what it would look like, and if anyone would bite.
