Rain! What rain?
Registered for Shenandoah in the single speed class. Must be out of my mind. 100 miles on a rigid single gear machine sounds like a lot but I'm doing it because I just want to be able to let my mind be free. Plus this past weekend after spending some time with my SS (getting reacquainted with a old friend) How could I go with the gears?
This post almost started as a top ten reasons why a single kicks ass but I will spare all of you the agony of my thoughts and just give the tippy top reason.
(1) Cleanup is a breeze
The lack of maintenance on a rigid single is a treat after a 6 hour day
Just blast it with the hose and lube the chain. maybe 5 minutes tops..
Remember kids: Ride it like ya stole it, then put it away dirty...
