I am a committed single speeder and have been for about 2 years...
I have four bikes all SS (2 x mtb, 1 x c/cross and 1 x road bike).
None have suspension either
I do live in a very hilly part of the south east (yes we do have hills odwn here) on the north downs in kent.
I noticed when I go out with the local MTB club that no gears and no suspension is limiting me a little (they have full bounce geared bikes). They have to make a few accomodations for me although I am brave and chuck my fully rigid cindercone off most hills!
I have been out with friends and I need to question them closely to as to route terrain and hills to decide which bike to take!
My strength has improved with the SS and I am concerned if I go back to gears I will lose this
Do I keep the faith or relent and give in and go for the gears (and the suspension)?
