I've recently gained an interest in riding bike. I have two interests: touring, and urban single-speed riding. I currently have an 80s frame I plan on converting to single speed once the funds come in.
I had an idea: 'is it possible to tour with a single speed, or a fixed gear for that matter?'
I DO NOT want to hear arguments about why this is a bad idea, blah, blah, blah... I know.
I want to hear stories, suggestions from people who have either done this, want to do it, or have ideas about it.
Are there actual benefits? Or is it simply for the fun of it. Let's hear it!
