As much fun as riding a single speed bike was i did find it very frustrating. Getting the balance between a gear for climbing and a gear for riding on the flat was difficult and the mad spining to go any where certainly cut my range down. I put 10 gears on the same bike I used for SSUK and transformed it into a MSUK machine (multispeed) what a relief! i can actually keep up with other riders on the flat and riding 20 miles or so is now achievable in a reasonable length of time again.
