i love the look of single speeds!!!
I thought about building one a few years back, but I already have my BMX, and use that as my neighborhood bike.And before my heart attack, I was goign to turn my mountain bike into a SS....but now, I need the gears so I don't blow up my heart...though a big part of me still wants to try SS fitness
There's something to the simplicity of crank -> chain -> single cog .. it's a thing! It's a nice ride, too. The White FW has a lot of points of engagement internally -- several more than a typical freewheel. You get a nano second of spin before you engage. It also sounds like a beehive when you pedal backwards going down a hill - ZEEEEEEEEE - it's pretty loud. People turn to look. I had one of those incidents myself, so I know what you mean. I wear a HR monitor and if the ticker starts to skip around I back off.
