Glad there are some girls on this forum site. Hello to you all!
I want to upgrade my commuter bike to something much lighter, faster and more fun, and think single-speed looks cool.
not sure about all the technical boy-stuff that goes on around it?
does it make you have massive tyranosuarus thighs?
getting away fornm the lights at speed?
going up hills like pentonville road?
I have a lurking suspicion that singlespeed and fixed speed is a fashion thing and a boy thing.
But - I would like to be proved wrong as I liked the feel of a single speed when I tried one last week. I would have ridden off into the sunset, but I had to go home to cook the tea and do the ironing.
The girl-perspective on single-speed would be really useful to me...
