I have dabbled with SS over the last 5 years or so having both a commuter and an offroad bike through most of that time.
If I am honest I kind of jumped on the bandwagon
Over the last 6 months or so I have been riding with folk who I consider to be pretty quick. On
several most outings I could be heard cursing my lack of gears as I furiously spun to keep up.
Despite this I do like SS but recently the realisation has come that gears really do have their place.
I am fitter now than I have been for a while and find with a geared set up that I can not only keep up better but we are riding a lot quicker.
It comes with great sadness that at least for now I am going 100% geared.
This is however a case of egg on face as I have just finished a Ti SS rigid hardtail ...... Ahwel I suppose it wont take much to go 1x9.
Has anyone else experienced similar?
