Pretty freakin' nice for a first.

By the way, by saying, "my first singlespeed" implies you plan a second. Just sayin'.

Anyway, noice. Way.

Of course - both of my first two MTBs (that were planned to last me a long, long time) never made it past 1.5 years. My wife is not thrilled with my replacement plan but my LBS doesn't complain too much. :D
