My carbon roadie, which was constantly in need of a tune up, was stolen during shipping from LA to D.C. I'm excited about the simplicity of a single speed and I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a replacement It's gonna be an SS (SE Lager, Steamroller, or similar...recs welcome) and potentially working my way to fixed.
I used to ride to work every day, and I'd like to get back to that. My legs, however, are not as strong as they were a few years ago - and my stomach is considerably larger.
The question is how much torture are my legs in for?
I don't mind a proper burn on a steep climb, but I would hate to find my self walking up every hill I come across.
