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
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
