I met up with a few local road guys this AM on my new singlespeed. These guys were lead by a very strong rider on a Lightspeed (sp?). I joined up with them for a few miles and was able to keep up. They had lots of singlespeed questions. I think singlespeeds will continue to grow in popularity.
Our top speed was 24.5mph according to the leaders speedometer. I was pushing maximum cadence and had no more top end left. Needless to say I have to have some sort of tailwind to keep up that kind of pace.
This proving to be an interesting diversion.
