New member first post so bear with me...
I've been riding full-sussers for years, but with winter about to descend on us I don't really want to be replacing an expensive drivetrain and bearings etc on my Commencal Meta in the spring, so am toying with giving a singlespeed a go.
Always liked the idea of the simplicity of one, but wondered how one gear is good for climbing/flat/descending. I ride mostly in the East Mids (relatively flat) but with trips up to Peaks, Cannock, the usual trail centres etc now and again.
In your experience, is the transition an easy one to make?
If I do go down the SS route, I want to do it cheaply - noticed quite a few old frames going in the classifieds - is this the best route? It's just a bike to see me through until the winter gloop has gone...unless I get bitten by it of course
Loads of questions but interested to know what the converts think....
