Infinite Gears

So my brother Serious Cyclist likes to ride fixed gear bicycles. In fact, he has ridden fixed gear centuries. While he prefers bikes with unity gear, I would like a bike with infinte gears.

The problem with a bike with infinite gears is that the universe is finite. A bike with infinite gears would exist at every point in the universe simultaneously. You couldn't go anywhere, you'd already be there. Well, at least your cassette would be everywhere.

Plus infinite gearing would make the bike really heavy. And it would take an infinite amount of time to service your bike, so you would probably just leave it lying around the universe and not ride it.
