not a SS exactly, but by default, as you are too scared to take your hands off the bars to scange gear in case of losing the not already too great balance.

m just joking, single speeds are cool as long as they're retro. It'd probably be a good idea because it open the competition up to more than just Cartsen & Rumpfy :?

Thing to remember about ss though, there isn't really a period groupset etc. So any build is likely to be partly modern anyway. Wasn't it Keith Bontrager that said ss was supposed to be a bodge of old bits anyway?
Mine started a bodge, then i started getting missed eyed with syncros and raceface :twisted:
