If God wanted us to ride single speed he would not have given us gears... Ditto on Shocks...

My next bike will probably be a rigid SS 29er. Will definitely need to have the option of fitting a front susp fork though.

Because the world loves to overcomplicate things!!! Thats why! If they can make it bigger, squishier, shinier, easier, more parts, more creeks, more stuff it has to be better right?  NOT ;D
Gears??? We don't need no STINKING GEARS!!!

The crew is doing well.not a whole lot of riding going on.just enough to keep from getting too fat.
