I just paid for my first SS bike today, just gotta wait for the shop to build it up now.. I find it funny that when I was a kid the only bikes I ever had were single speeds but all I ever wanted were bikes with tons of gears to choose from. Now that I've matured slightly and have figured out my needs I'm lusting after that one gear, something that 15 years ago I'd pass up in an instant for lots of shiny chain rings and a cassette. Ahh what's old is new again!!
