    single speed addict

    i got a prob, started this mtb thing last year with the 29er outcast, love it, got a gt peace for my birthday this august, steelie, with gears, nice bike, but i only rode it like 2x, i just cant put my single speed away, and its only an entry level!! imagine if i had a kona unit, salsa selma, or a g.f. rig?? cant tell my sis, who with the rest of my sibs got the $$ together 2 surprise me for my 50th birthday, that i really want a better single speed 29er, ugh!!

    Maybe you can swap it for a SS GT Peace and no one would be the wiser?

    you could set it up 1x9 with a jump stop to mix things up a little

    no, get out .

    just plz try to make it work with out a tensioner, that just ruins the whole look of the bike, unless its a rasta tensioner

    What is this? My 50th is coming up and I keep coming back to this yearning to get my first SS... It seems that I see a lot in this age bracket who are doing the SS thing...Hmmmm
