I think Single-Speeds are cool and useful, take a lot of weight off the bike and are less delicate (no derailleurs), for some uses (freeriding) it might be pretty useful.

I don't ride one myself but I'd love to try one eventually.

Thread closed, I would discontinue this line of trolling, consider that your first warning.

The other thread is closed now too as it is now a very obvious attempt to just be annoying.
