    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

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