    These days single speeds seem to be more popular for kids or for people that do tricks on bikes. Having a multi-speed just makes life easier on longer rides or varied terrain.

    That's not the question brother. Single Speed Bike are tough and durable. It can endure any road conditions, and also has a remarkable speed depends on how many teeth your sprocket has. The real question is can your body last long on a long distance ride. Other factors is road condition and weather condition. But if there's no other option for you to save some cash, just deal with your current situation. And just find alternative routes that can shorten your travel time.

    Well you could try and probably after trying you'll get the idea to buy another bike. You won't last doing long distances and upward slopes.

    Single speed is ideal for tricks compared to multi-speed. That is why it is very popular on kids. While adults prefer having a multi-speed bike because they love to ride on a long distance basis.
