Don't like gears though....might just go back to SS with a different ratio.

Works for me stubbsy, did the very same on an M2 I had not that long ago.
Can't get up very steep stuff off-road but for most stuff it's a good compromise.

The tyres are/were a mistake and they won't be replaced. Slow and heavy. I was quite surprised as I had the Super Moto versions before and they were fine but I kept getting punctures in them.
When I have a few quid I'll replace them.

Try one of these with a White Industries Double crank. All the gears you need ;)
