I'm guessing this has come up before but I couldnt find it through a search. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with a single speed e-bike. I currently have a Bionx PL350 kit hooked up to my Norco Wolverine 8 speed mountain bike. I find that I never run into a situation where I have to switch out of the bike's highest gear, and often desire an even higher gear.
I'd like to hook the Bionx kit up to a lighter bike and thought a single speed may be the way to go to lighten up and simplify the whole setup. I know very little about single speed bikes. Could I expect a single speed bike to work similarly to the highest gear I use consistently on my 8 speed bike? Does anyone anticipate any problems with hooking a hub motor kit up to a single speed? Thanks in advance.
