- Ss 29er
33×20 is my favoured gear, covers most situations.
Had the cannondale loved it so much I sold it to fund something more exotic but still singlespeed. It’s one of those things that either grabs you or doesn’t, give it more than one ride as well, it’s a nice way to travel as long as you pick the right terrain/riding style.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
SS isn’t for everyone.Posted 4 years ago
I like it. Its my only mtb. Has been for a few years. But its not for everyone. I keep a 1×10 set-up to go on if I’m riding somewhere posh, but these days my riding is condensed into hastily arranged 2hr slots, once or twice a week at most. And for that I love the no hassle approach. Get home, hose it off, oil the chain & hang it back up. I dont think I’ve taken a spanner to my bike for more than a year.
Lazy, perhaps. 😉igmSubscriber
You can always run two chain rings and two sprockets. Provided they are reasonably similar in total teeth and size of ring you can have a road setup and an odd road setup. Say 32-18 and 36-14. Play with the numbers and you’ll get fun both ways (a bi-cyclist perhaps, IGMC)Posted 4 years agojamesoSubscriber

Lazy? You’re a pro mechanic. I brush mine off if it ever dries and oil the chain when it squeaks.. run it dry and it self-cleans )Posted 4 years agoRustyNissanPrairieMember
I have a Cannondale SS29er 2013 model, had a Curtis SS before it. Love it – minimal maintenance, great for messing in mud. No probs with EBB.
Running 33-18 (i think) dropped down by 2 teeth on the rear sprocket.
Fine on the hills/valley of Rossendale apart from big stuff like Holcombe tower.Posted 4 years ago
