Why Single-speed Mountain Bikes are Crazy Fun - Build & Ride. Today, we take my tired old hardtail mountain bike and turn it into a unique and fun shredding machine! Step one, switch out the 140mm suspension fork for a 150mm, and then take off all the gears. Yep, this video is for all of you single speeders out there. I've been to the dark side before, and I ain't going back. This bike is staying as a single speed for skatepark, street riding, trail shredding, and hiking—'cause this thing can't climb worth a sh*t!!!

Buy vomit bags if you plan on climbing
For those of you asking, my gear ratio is 32/16. This is no good for climbing, but I need it for sprinting. With a single speed you need to choose and commit!

People ask me about that Slime sealant, since it looks just like the stuff in the auto parts store. It's not! You can only get that formula from a bike shop or online. https://shop.slime.com/collections/tube-and-tubeless-sealants/products/tubeless-bicycle-sealant-16-oz?variant=45264579656
