    I recently bought an old steel bike and converted it to a single speed. I have been riding it for about a month as my daily commuter bike but this weekend I took it out on a club ride when I would normally ride my geared bike. I knew we were going to take a longer, hillier course than usual and I was curious to see if not only I could survive but also to keep up with everyone else. At this point, I no longer have any interest in riding my geared bike.

    Now I am looking at my full suspension, geared mountain bike and thinking it's time for a new mountain bike.

    I have looked at the Surly 1x1 but am interested in hearing what others would recommend.
