I scrolled through the topics here and didn't really see anything that specifically treats the question: Why single speed? Why not just put your multi-gear road bike in a gear and leave it there if you want single speed? splain? I see hotshots in racing clubs show up for club rides with a simple single-speed sometimes and everybody makes a big deal about it, and I'm thinking "so what?"... So anyway, I have an old cromoly bike in great condition that would be a good candidate for a SS, but... why? I'm not trying to be a smart__, I'm trying to get my head around the notion.
Thanks in advance for your time.
