    Just picked up my first SS! and WOW!

    I just got back from my first ride on my new Carve SL, picked it up and went for a short ride and all I can say is WOW! This was a huge step for me being my first mountain bike in about 3 years, first 29er, rigid and SS lol. I love this thing so far, still cant believe how fast it is! Gearing seems decent for my sad level of fitness right now maybe a hair low but I'll leave it alone for now.

    Still need to convert it to tubeless and yes the brakes are noisy >< I was kind of hoping that I would get a decent set but maybe they will break in.

    Just wanted to say hey to SS guys, maybe I'll get a chance to go for a decent ride this weekend if I can get off work! lol

    This is a knee-friendly approach with singlespeeds.

    Good to hear you're enjoying the ride! No matter what the bike, that's the important thing.
