    SS Cross

    I am thinking about buying my buddies Felt Breed Single Speed.

    I have a road bike and a touring/commuter bike but I have always wanted to try a SS. I plan on using for trail riding with cross buddies and a few races and to commute to work.

    But I want to know any negatives to ss Cross either racing or commuting.

    thanks

    negative: they usually suck at shifting
    positive: cool points

    choose gearing carefully

    and there are some SS only cross races

    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded to SRAM X9 with 1x10 and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless.
    2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra with 9-speed SLX RD to run 11-32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless
    and
    Some Burton snowboard setups, one with stiff ol' Camber and one with Rocker-Camber-Rocker

    Wear knickers and a wool jersey while riding it, you'll be one cool dude.

    A beard will go a long way as well.
