Last night after our regular Thursday night ride, a guy came up to a group of us who were hanging out at the trail head having post ride beers and asked if we were all riding singlespeeds and why? I look around and probably 75% of our bikes were singlespeeds. The overwhelming response was because it was like riding a bike when we were kids. You just get on and ride. No worries about shifting, when to shift, or what's the best gear to be in. I ride singlespeed about 95% of the time--road & mtn, but mostly mtn. I haven't been on a geared road bike at all this year. So why do you all ride singlespeed?
