One of each, take the ss to places without too many hills, Swinley or similar, if going somewhere hilly I take gears.
To all single speeders...
ilikebikes - thanks for the tip on the Halfords vouchers; I will check it out
chela - so the Soda is SS at the mo? How do you achieve that EBB?
samuri - sounds so similar to me; all SS then a slow return to a mixture of gears and SS.
Brownbacks is a bit far for me as I live in Kent
The grind away, skip and ghost shift.
either your gears arnt set up properly?
or you need to improve your shifting technique?
Not trolling, but ive had 100% silence from mine for the past 6 months, and done litte more than clean it and relube it.
i dont change gear if its not an appropriate time to change, asking it to shift under load is a big no no in my opinion.
shift before you need to, or put up with it and stomp for a few strokes to get enough momentum to take the load off the chain so you can dump all the gears to get back to a spinny gear. (99% of the time predeict the gear and get it shifted just before its required, not as and when its required)
I have 2 SSs and one geared bike.
i reckon they get equal use, so 33% geared and 66% SS riding for me
