I want a singlespeed really bad, a steel ss, but for some reason I've got it in my head if I make one that needs a tensioner I'll never really be satisfied. Like, after a couple months I'll want a "real" ss with track ends or something so bad it will drive me nuts. I keep dreaming about riding around on a ss and it never has a singulator.
Is that stupid or has that happened to you? Is the experience on a "real" ss any different or better than a home built one?
I know it's an essentially dumb question, but this is how I figure stuff out- by asking dumb questions. I've got a chance to buy a cool Bianchi lugged frame mountain bike but I'm wondering if I'd be better off just saving up for a monocog.
