    Don't you hate it when....

    ....the guys you ride with who choose to ride a single speed complain about only having one gear! Or that they would have done better with a geared bike, etc, etc,

    I make excuses all the time when in reality I just suck. And I have gears. That's why I ride with people who suck more than me.

    I categorically hate riding with (and reading posts by) people who complain. Singlespeed's got nothing to do with it.

    Why do people go for single speed? Reliability, or... 'cause they want to be cool (in their minds)?

    When I ride a fixie with a group of road riders, I never blame the bike.
    Ill admit if I'm having a hard time, like 25+mph winds a few weeks ago,
    but I never say 'would've could've.... etc"

    That sounds like TGMBG talk.

    I blame everything but myself for my riding:

    "That drop has a sketchy take off."
    "The landing looks off camber."
    "It's too slick out here, don't want to risk it."
