Just do it :D
I never knew how much fun riding SS would be. It really is a blast.
I´ve been mountain biking the whole summer with it and now it´s a commuter again.
On tuesday I crushed my former best time to work. That includes my 9-speed Race Lite.
So using one gear only makes you real strong as a rider.
And it´s a different way of riding, full tilt always :mrgreen:

Here´s how it looks with everything on. So it´s now 39/16.
The commuter gearing went from 2,33 to 2,44 and I thought that would be a nice step.
But it´s a LOT heavier pushing the pedals! But the speed is there :twisted:

I must really get myself half links now to try and get a reasonable magic gear.

All comments welcome :)

It´s back to trail gearing again, but I think I got a reasonable Magic Gear :)

What do you guys think??
It´s 32/18 and it is a bit slack, but I´ll give it a go during the week and see if it works :mrgreen:
