    New to forum. Been singlespeeding for a few months now. Build my own machines some nice, most beaters with a spray can job and odd bits from a box.

    I'll have some questions as I'm getting more serious (can you use that word about something that's so fun?) about increasing mileage and gearing but don't want to blow out a 43 year old heart, lung, or knee out of ignorance.

    Tom hi from the Swamps of South Jersey
    I just got an old Huffy and took off the derailers and shifters and put the chain from the 50 to the 21 sprockets. I guess I have a single speed now :D

    Thanks for the welcome. Currently I'm spinning a 42x16 (69 inch) on 700x23's.

    I currently only have time to ride in the early mornings (4:30-6am) before work..but it's kinda nice. Very little traffic and I get to see the stars and moon on a very quiet bike. It's amazing what you see, hear, and smell at that hour.
