    First Timer

    I have a On One 456, it was forever a 1x9 but I was curious about the single speed. Sept 31 2011 I tore my ACL, MCL and meniscus,
    I am just getting back into riding. I went for a ride 2 days ago, 10 minutes into it chain suck, man I was pissed. So I went home bought a DMR tensioner with a 16 and 18 tooth cogs {need to get a 20 tooth}. Today I went for my first ride with it, I can see why so many folks love the simplicity and quit it brings. My lungs burned and my legs ached I had spit hangin from the corner of my mouth, I was wasted and but made it twice as far from 2 days ago. Looking forward to riding again.

    The good thing about SS is that you'll learn to know your capacity and goes beyond it.

    Have fun with your ride

    Fuzzy blur...no that's the bottom of your beer glass. Which tastes better when you ride single speed.
