    View is so much nicer on SS

    With this being about my sixth ride or so on a SS, I can't help but feel that the views are so much better than they used to be.......Pacman will be very familiar with these views...

    Can't wait to ride again!

    Maybe you enjoy them more while stopping to gasp for breath after some of the climbs there! Wait, maybe that's just me after a climb.

    Who knows, enjoy the buzz, SS'ng is awesome no matter what!

    oh no...it is me too.

    i do think it is because it feels more of a a pure (versus climbing on my geared bike) version of the sport.....yielding more satisfaction when getting to the top.

    i wonder if I will enjoy it even more when my new single speed arrives

    cheers

    definitely feels that way on some climbs.

    on the long fire-road climbs (like pictured), I have no problem and seem no more tired than on my geared bike, or at least not much more when I get to the top. What kills me are the short steep technical climbs, if I can make them that is.

    good point.....of course long steep climbs. I guess what I was referring to were the steep technical spurts in particular that are either ridiculously steep and/or technical that getting over even one revolution of the crank is lung-bursting.
