My rear derailer seems to be having a hard time shifting gears. It also requires constant adjusting, which I really don't want to waste my time doing; so I have been looking into converting my road bike (vertical dropout ) into a single-speed, mainly because I like simplicity.
Today I went out on a short ride (7km; I was tired from the 45km I rode yesterday) and I only used one gear (52/18). Surprisingly, I managed to do it, although there are some hills that will require practicing I think.
I guess that's it; just wanted to share it with you guys
