Thats pretty cool.......... I love single speeds as much as the next guy and I'd love to beleive that they can do anything a geared bike can do, BUT...... Thinking back to tours of years past when we watch those guys GRINDING up to the mountain passes on their geared bikes, at little more than walking speed and knowing they are some of the fittest strongest riders in the world ( not to mention the the beating their bodies take riding that way day after day) .......I can't help but think that the TdeF would be the most glaring example of a single speeds limitations and what they can't or shouldn't be used for.
