This is the best thread ever on why one should get a Single Speed.

1. Its cleaner looking
2. There is virtually no chain slap
3. Less clutter and weight
4. Less stuff means less things to break and replace
5. It has ever gear you could ever possible put on a excel spread sheet built right into your own legs
6. Less gears = more beers

I've been riding a 1x9 on my 29er hardball for 4 years. Almost never miss the high and low gearing from the 3x. Love the simplicity and the wide narrow tooth chaining is magic. Now I'm considering a 1x12.

Anyone ridden one yet?

I put one of the new SRAM Eagle 1x12s XO1s on my 29er last week. Nice bit of kit. 32t up front and 10-50t in the back. You have to get the matching chain and crankset (unless you have the right crankset). Awesome stuff. It shifts perfectly and is very very quiet. I upgraded a ton of stuff on this one, new wheels (tubeless for the first time), cranks (the Eagle cranks are carbon), in addition to the rest of the drivetrain. The bike is a bunch lighter and it is a dream to ride.
