forgot this thread was here.....
i love single speed, really hate suspension too but i need that off road, same with gears.......hence i will always have a geared bike with some sort off suspension fitted for play days/group rides.
99% of my riding is on cycle friendly tracks, within citys and towns so no need for nobbly tires, gears, discs, gears or suspension....its bliss having a bike thats back to basics........like my old BMX days.
i have converted a few bikes to SS, trying new ratios each time etc. dont think i have found a perfect one, i just get on with what each bike has at the time. part of the fun really.
my advice is try it if you have a space for one. ratio selection is key though, some folk might be put off when all they need is a good test session.
