    Single speed coaster bicycles?

    I have never had a thing against these bicycles..I just figure they geared them to
    high...I think they should put forth a major effort to lower the gearing on them and I bet more people will buy em?..It would be all I need:thumbup:

    Last year on SAGBRAW some old gent on a single speed blew by me. No way I could catch him. Gearings okay. Just a matter of getting trained for it.

    I know that gearing them to low means you will be coasting all the time thats no good...These bicycle have to be geared hiugh enough to supply some resistance
    Its just that I figure they could maybe come down a couple gears and make em a little easier pedaling...I'm refering to bottom line dept. store stuff just in case there is a mis understanding?
