    Picked up a Singular Swift and love it

    Singular makes a sweet hardtail. It looks like custom for pretty cheap.
    I live in a very hilly area: SS or greared? Hmm.

    I don't know why, but I feel like Singular swifts should all be SS. For that matter I think all hardtails should be SS, so maybe my opinion shouldn't count

    congrats on the new bike!

    I'm a bit like Ryan... other than I think all bikes should be singlespeed, hardtail and rigid.... but, I'm just sayin'. Sam does a really nice job with the Singulars. The geometry isn't for everyone but those that like 'em, love 'em. A lot of people like them with drop bars too. Enjoy!

    Yeah, i run mine SS in New Hampshire rocky rooty paradise. The swift just loves to be hammered on. Great frame/fork combo for sure.

    The cool thing about going SS is it is cheap on this bike. A few spacers, chain, and some rings. I am going to give it a try.

    The Singular is cheap steel but looks really well made. It looks almost custom. I got the frame and fork for $400. It is going to be a short track and muddy race racer. I may also use it for cyclocross in the fall.

    I have to buy some rings, spacers, chain, and some brakes and I'm riding. Considering some new Deore brakes with Surly rings. It should be fun. Certain trails won't work because of the elevation gain but a local trail will be good. Nice bike.

    I set it up SS and it is very fun. It isn't good for super steep climbs or super bumpy rides but on some trails it is very fun. Great ride for cheap.
