My shortest commuting route:
http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php?id=8100 (homeward direction)
Would this be considered hilly? (Height in metres and distance in KM)
I currently ride it on a Trek 1200 road bike, It's 17.5 miles and I have done it in 50minutes on a perfect morning and usually about an hour to 1 hour 10 on a slow evening home.
I was thinking of getting a pompino for the winter but am not sure I could cope with Single speed.
Maybe I could mix it up with mostly single speed but take the road bike in on dry winter days to take the pressure off?
I am thinking of starting out with the single speed to see how it goes but with the probably development of the bike to an alfine set up when money and time allows.
Anyone riding a similar style route single speed? Advice?
