It's my suspician that most of us don't start out with a single speed. I know that I was riding for about 9 years before I built up my first SS. And I didn't come into riding MTB until I was almost 30.

So, how old are you?

41

Bonus points if you include what type of SS(s) you ride.

Surly 1x1 fully rigid w/ V brakes
Shogun roadie for commuting in summer.
GT Peace 9r waiting for the spring thaw.

I also own a FS geared bike, A hardtail 29er geared bike, and a CF geared roadie.

Just turned 19, been riding since 15 so i guess im fairly newbie. Started with a fisher hifi then bought a rig. Lost the fork and now i ride rigid ( at least until my body says no in a few years)

Love it. In the market for a new frame this year though, not sure what to get.

MTBing since 1992. I was 19 when I bought that first ride: a Cannondale M400.

I have two 1x1's:
2000: large, black, rigid, v brakes, fenders, studded tires. This bike gets a lot of action this time of year exclusively for back (dirt) road riding. It has a cracked seattube, right below the seatpost cinching slot.
2009: medium, orange, rigid, disc trailbike. I had to have another one that was more trail worthy. I built a Spot up in 2007, but sold that frame in favor of another 1x1.

2008 Blur LT2 1x9 that I ride 50% of the time on trail. The 1x1 gets the other 50%.
1993 Bridgestone MB-1 that's used as a roadbike in the springtime; pavement mostly.
