So I was recently bitten by the single speed bug when one of my riding buddies challenged me to not shift during one of our rides. I have to say, it totally changes the way you ride... I'm constantly pushing the envelope as to hard I can corner without breaking etc.
So I converted my 26" Castellano Fango softail into an SS. Holy crap! I found that I was significantly faster on almost all of the trails I ride regularly. I don't think weight savings can account for this. It would appear that multi speed perpetuates my laziness.
The only problem is now I am obsessed: I'm now turning my new 29er into an ss bike too.
