After much bitching and moaning about my inability to singlespeed my way up these mountains, I have converted the Lazer Cat to 1x9. Do I feel like a quitter? Yes. Will I be able to ride up hill better and not spin out in the flats? Hopefully.
Notice the nice new Park workstand that Heather got me for xmas. It really makes working on my bikes a lot easier. Also notice the psychotic tuxedo cat, all worn out from driving me crazy by attacking my shifter cable while I was setting it up.
I hope to be back to SS someday.
