Well, like the rest here, I'm a big guy. My size is measured by "mucho grande", and no matter how hard I try, I'll never be sub-200. But, I love cycling. Currently I live somewhere that is just too close for commuting (~4 blocks) via bike - it takes me all of 2 minutes .
However! In March I'm moving to a house about 2 miles from work. The commute is going to be NICE - all residential streets that are mildly, but not extremely, hilly. To put it mildly, I'm looking forward to it.
And I also like to get a workout in. 2 miles on my super-geared MTB will be.. easy . However, I was thinking of picking up a single speed. Maybe something pre-built like a Bianchi San Jose, or maybe picking up a Surly frame and doing my own build. Obviously the simplicity, reliability, and "romance" of single speed bikes also appeals to me or I wouldn't even be considering it .
So that's my question. Do any of you clydes have SS's? How do you like it?
