Not to argue, but speaking as one who rode a single speed mountain bike off road in nasty terrain for 20 years before age took it's toll and I resorted to gears, the SS e-bike would make sense (to me) unless the terrain was hilly. The important aspect is being able to maintain half of the bike's top speed when ascending in order to avoid a significant portion of the battery's output being absorbed as heat by the motor.
