    This. Although I'll probably expand that to tres at some point (aggressive/AM SS, light rigid SS, SSCX/roadie)

    Ever time I think a geared bike makes sense, I ride a single speed and remember there's a reason that's all I own.

    How is the Niner One9? I'm considering buying a clearance 2011 frame to build up. I've just never come across anyone with one.

    I have 2 single speed mountain bikes. 1 is more XC oriented, while the other is more all mountain. The only geared bike I own is my road bike which will keep its gears for a few reasons. It's a long term loaner from a friend, so I don't want to strip the gears off. The only place I really ride it is flat and windy. In that case gears help me get the most out of my ride.

    Just one

    I have 4 bikes and 1 is a 29er SS.

    After reading this thread, I think the next few bikes will have to be SS to keep up with this crowd!

    So if you own multiple single speeds, does each have different gearing? I want to built another and I'm looking for excuses.

    there's all the excuse you need!

    per your other question: i run pretty much the same gearing on my ss and fixed mtbs, a little higher on my ss cx, and different gearing on my commuter vs. cruisers vs. steamroller.

    2 bike: on-one inbred rigid and a mongoose boot'r. If the trail gets to the point where I can't ride the inbred uphill, then I turn around and hop on the goose.

    What's the biggest most important difference between the 2 bikes?

    Jabber is way more comfortable to be on all day, the Luddite is a great short ride bike... meaning 40 or less miles to me. I ride my jabber for endurance races. Love em both though!
