well you see with single speed you have one gear and can't shift. But a geared bike you can change the gears...lol jk but the advantage of singlespeed is there is less stuff to break so therefore cheaper to run. Especially with a DJ/urban bike you would be bending the derailler a lot

well i cant think of any trick that involves your drive train, but its alot simpler and easier to maintain and it gives you one less thing to worry about.

SS is lighter too :) btw watch out for those grips on the p-series.. I don't know if they are stock but I just bought a P.1 from a friend 3 weeks ago and the grip ripped in half when I touched down from a jump. I fell to the side after that going a considerably high rate of speed and smashed my chin on a root and my shorts ripped in half and so did my underwear. I had to call my girlfriend to pick me up from the DJ's because my junk would hang out if I rode, Also my face was bleeding lol
