They probably don't have much of a place in the market anymore because they're not really used much at the elite track level and there are lots of cheaper competitive options out now for other users.

Hills are always going to be harder on a single speed. Give it a few more rides and let your legs get used to it a little before you start changing stuff is my advice.

That bike was around $300-350 new as I recall, so while it's a pretty decent deal, I don't know if it's worth a 2 hour drive and possible pandemic exposure/spreading.
