    singlespeed gets last laugh

    I was on my first trail ride of the season yesterday. I Rode with a group of gearies and laughded as they repeatedly stopped at every trail intersection to adjust their drive trains. By the way, the only singlespeed out there (Me) spent much or the day leading the group. I love my singlespeed!

    Sounds like your geared friends need to invest in SRAM drivetrains.

    I have gotten a lot stronger already since starting singlespeeding toward the end of last season. With the mild winter this year I have consistantly ridden my tall geared (39-13), road specific single at least twice a week for about a 40min loop. I feel I'm stronger right now. I can power up a lot more hills if I cant get a run at them (following a spinning gearie).
