My Current bike isn't a single speed (It's 7 on the block, 2 on the crank - so 14), but it's a stupidly high ratio, something daft like 18 to 1 or something like that.

Basically NONE of the cogs on the gears are anywhere near the size of the crank, so it's not impossible to ride, but it is hard. Hover going down hill, even on a small slope the damn thing is terrifying WTF | :WTF: , theres a small village called medomsley not far from where I live, and just on the outskirts of the village heading down towards a place called hamsterley mill there's a drop of about 100 meters (Maybe more) but it's a long 4 mile stretch at a constant 7 or 8 deg slope, and the road winds like a snake, so you simply cannot see around the bends. To make it more of a challenge it's also an A road here in the UK, with a national 60mph speed limit on it, and is thankfully quite wide.

Long story short, I found out just how terrifying this bike can be going down Medomsley Edge bank!!!!

I didn't come off or crash or anything, but I'm certainly NOT DOING it again Big Grin | :-D
