I have to say you just can't beat the joy of single speed bikes. I took the dahon boardwalk out today; first outing since last october. All I had to do is put a little lube on the chain, some air, and ride away. No gear adjustments to mess with, just ride without thinking. Same for my 8 year olds single speed specialized hotrock. This dahon with the big apples is the best bike I've ever had.
