SS or Derailleur MTB
I'm looking for a bike that I can use for everyday commuting, getting around university campus, and riding skatepark and urban freestyle.
I'm looking at specialized p1 and p2's which are freestyle bikes, except the p2 has an 8 speed on the back.
Do you get used to riding single speed, or does the derailleur really help?
Also, I will be doing a lot of jumping around, so I need something that will last.
somebody has to have an opinion on this
What do you expect this end of the forum to say?
I have both varieties of mtb, and tbh, for casual dirt riding, I love the SS. The SS can't climb everything, though; so the geared bike gets some use.
Riding mtb on the street, though? Either use a geared mtb or stick a super-high gear on the SS. Mashing a 2:1 gear ratio on 26" wheels on flat ground for miles is no fun.
