Anyone have a 1x1 set up as a city commuter with an IGH? I'm curious to hear how it performs. It's a chunky looking frame, but can sport an IGH and disc brakes at the same time, plus handle fat tires for winter commuting...thus making it interesting to me. I'd be interested to hear about any experiences. Thanks!
I use a Surly 1x1 singlespeed for commuting and long distance rides. Mine is set up with 29'er wheels and 700x38tires plus full fenders. I also have drop bars on mine. I love that frame, it can be built up in so many different ways.
The 1X1 will also take Surly Marge Rims and 3.45" 24" fat tires. I'm waiting for Shimano's new 11 speed IGH hub to be available before my Rat Ride (the original before it was called Surly) is built up.
