    My bike suitable for 4X?

    Well.. Is it? What would make it suitable? Is running SS ok for 4X? Maybe a pike would be good. Please only answer if you know what you're talking about or if you like my bike

    I don't see anything, either. But I did get the finger from that avatar chick about 50 times.

    Maybe if someone bought her a drink, she'd lighten up.

    i'm not going to wait for the pict - -my connection's too slow. I'll just answer the question: You probably won't be happy with your results single-speeding 4x. Holeshot is everything with gated starts. So your gear has to be just right to explode out of the gate. This means that if you geared your SS for starts, you'll probably spin out too soon. If you gear for the run, you'll get blown out on the starts every time.

    I raced 4x with a schwinn rocket 88 and a Duke SL. Assuming your gearing is ok, you should be more than fine with your current setup. 4x isn't that hard on a bike if the course is laid out well.
