Ask Pinkbike: Back to Flats, Inches of Squish for Enduro, and Pondering the Next Upgrade
i usually ride flats but im faster and i can get up more technical sections with clips. but i also ride a single speed so its real high torque and low cadence.

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
First of all, nut Kung fu is hilarious. I ride a rigid steel 29r SS. On really rocky mountains (New Mexico) Reasons it's awesome 1. It's super fast, you push on bike, bike pushes back, instantly. 2. Front wheels always goes exactly where you put it, tracks and picks lines like a lazer 3. 300 dollars for a 2011 kona unit. 2700 for beer, pot, nice things for the girl, or even charity. (Yes I just said 3000 dollar bikes are immoral) 4. Single speeding up mountains will get you in great shape and turn you into a monster. 5. I don't need a dropper post because I never sit down. 6. The look on people's faces when they see youre on a hardtail, then the look when they realize it's a rigid. 7. The look on people's faces when I pass them on the ups with one gear. 8. The look on people's faces when I pass them on the downs with a rigid fork. 9. It's hardcore.

SRAM X-Sync 2 Oval Chainrings - Review
Yes, so much. It's faster and easier. Especially on a single speed where everything is low rpm but high torque and your always wrenching on the pedals and handle bars. If you ride a single speed you need an oval chainring. I got a 9 dollar one from China, works perfect. Never dropped a chain but I also have horizontal dropouts and no derailer, difference in tension from hard to easy part of the ring is only like 2 or 3 mm. The only problem is that on the easy part or the ring, with the little bit of slack, it shakes and makes a little noise whereas round chai rings are totally silent. Also you should get a single speed, so much fun, so cheap and easy, and it'll turn you into a monster.
