You better hurry before the fad ends.

This is my baby in various editions :-)

It is a 2005 Norco Charger, iti si fully rigid, single speed, It has two setups - hard core hill climb ( hence the Hutchinson Rhinos ) and road - traveling setup :-)

This is for hillclimb - cardio











This is the same bike in white, for road and gravel orientated training - it is only 9,3 kilos in this setup :-)





And this is a bike in a setup when we are doing our Around the world trip, so far 35 countries and counting - 32.000 kilometers, only the frame, seatpost and the wheels are original, everything else gets replaced and upgraded as it wears down :-) not bad for an 8 year old bike :-)











Cheers

Why a single speed?
I never quite understood the reasoning, besides weight reduction and reliability.
Here in the hills of Pgh, it'd kick my arse to be on a single or fixie

I would just go and replace the hanger in that case. Aluminum doesn't like to be bent back and I'd worry about messing up the bolts and frame threads. And pick up a spare for next time.

I've ridden my geared bike as a SS. As long as you get the gear right, there's no problem. Trick is getting the gear right. My riding buddy did the Stupid (sp?) 50 on a SS. He didn't get the gear right and had to walk a bunch.

What kind of bike is that? I miss my old BMX, but I'm not sure I could fold myself onto a 20 in wheeled bike again.
