    You know you're a single speeder when..

    ...you crash over the handlebars climbing uphill !!. I know I ran this before but after two of these crashes (my buddy and I), I had to run it

    Yup. I did that twice within 50 meters when I first got my SS.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    done that about 3 times...

    i have broken 3 shimano chains on ss rides, each time i was climbing and went over the bars, pretty hard. it's usually slow mo...kind teeter-totter on the bars before i fall hard head first...my buddy's always have a good, hard laugh if they aren't too far behind.

    i always end up crackin' up and dust myself off.

    Did that on my fixie going uphill pretty fast. Was really pulling up hard on the pedals when my cleat failed. Made me pay a little more attention to the pedal tension and usefull lifespan of my cleats. Made it out with a sprained wrist.

    =(

    Ditto, on a new Fuel complete with all the BS ghost shift and chain drop [email protected] It's what pushed me into the SS realm.
