Retro bikes lend themselves to single speed.


I've never quite understood the connection myself, except that old bikes are often cheap, and people thinking of trying singlespeed generally want to try it on the cheap first ;-)


I also think its releated to the fact that retro bikes are "generally" seen as simple, From a time before it was necessary to have 6in of travel just to go to the shops. And i think SS ties in with this ethos.
