In gliders, reducing drag as much as possible is the holy grail. Gear are draggy. Some gliders use retractable gear, while a lot use in-line gear that are so well fared that barely the contact patch of the two wheels are visible. Some use no wheels at all and you land on skids.

Ahh, ok. Thanks Merlin. My being used to flying Cessna 152's and 172's seems like it would be a tough transition??? Hard landings and not "flaring" on rear 2 wheels first. thoughts??
