Because it was easy, I went ahead and set this frame up as a single speed. This won’t be for long though as I really enjoy this frame as a standard road bike but the advantages of single speeds are noted by me and as such I decided to break this one out of the shed for a ride today. In addition to that I decided to head east young man (and women) where the traffic is light, the roads are flat, and the scenery would be new. If your looking for a day trip head east on 5 and just keep going. If you go far enough you’ll be completing what most people refer to as the cap to cap which is the current capital of Virginia to the former colonial capital of Williamsburg (not brooklyn). Bust out the single speed for this one too as it is pretty flat and you can really work it out with just one gear…ride lite!
