Also various other bikes at good prices if single speed or drop bars isn't your thing.

Excellent deal, was just about to post it myself.

I have the Cross 0 and it's a really good bike for the money. I'm quite tempted by the Hybrid 1 at the same price with its fitted mudguards and rear rack.

HOT!

To be trendy.

It's not the "hybrid version" of the Cross, it's a completely different bike. Still worth looking at though: £199, and at least it has gears!

If I lived somewhere flat I would love one, but it's hilly in Yorkshire, so a single speed would be gruelling, that said all the steep uphills around here are single speed strava'ites
Ps. Voted hot

Perhaps you could enlighten me as to under what circumstances a single speed bike would be better than a bike with gears?

When is a bike better than a moped? a car? a private jet?

I used to commute on a single (fixed) to reduce my maintenance requirements. No gears to reindex, to clean, to sometimes fail.

Lower maintenance, which is lovely whilst commuting in the winter months. More could go wrong etc.

Also its cheaper, gearing costs more to add on etc.

I recently bought a Revolution Tourer from them, ok for the price but as you'd expect components are not best quality (get what you pay for). Gears were not setup correctly so having to get lbs to set them up properly. Still, can't complain at £200 for bike like this, given the problems I've had single speed is very tempting! Heat added.

I was about to ask the same thing, do you at least get the foot brake system with a single speed?
Otherwise seems like a major step back in time and usability

seriously, can you answer the question?
It's obvious why they wouldn't, you lose the ability to climb a heal and things like that.
Do you understand the reason your car has a gearbox?

You learn to pick up more speed on the flats to build the momentum to take you up hills, which you tackle out the saddle to get over them faster.
What does that have to do with single speed bikes?

Also that bike isn't even particularly light. 11.3kgs is only 0.5kg lighter than a similarly priced geared road bike (£220), and the road bike has pedals, so the actual difference will be more like 0.3kgs at best.

Ok, so it's cheaper, some suggest it's somehow more desirable to get a single speed, which is a bit misleading.

Main advantage of a (my) single speed bike is it's easier to clean.
Also you can use a 1/8 inch chain - which lasts ages.
And then, as already said, there's the lack of shifters/mechs and their cabling to go wrong.

That said, I also have 4 geared bikes :|

Bargain.

Wouldn't fit me but I'm looking for a single speed for commuting. For those wondering, if you live in a flat area and don't need gears (probably most London commuters) then a single speed bike is great: less maintenance, less to clean, less to steal, less to go wrong. I've just paid out £60 for a new cassette, chain, tools and chainring for my road bike which I've been commuting on for a year now; if I'd be using a single speed for commuting my road bike would take far less of a battering!

Probably going to go for that cheap single speed on Merlin and see how it is.

Related to this it might be worth checking if your work has a cycle to work scheme.

Mine has some thing going where you can buy the bike out of your pre tax income (discount of whatever tax rate you pay).

ok not done it myself but if you are into this it may be worth checking with your employment perks.

What's this flat area pish.. i live in Scotland and have been commuting on a single speed (Bowery) for many years. you can set the gear ratio up to how you need it for for your commute. As for can't climb a hill you're talking ****. Cheaper to run, easier to maintain and less parts to fail.

Single speed wingnuts fix-ate about maintenance and failure on gears, but I've never had a major gear failure in 5 years of commuting, and one in the same period of mountain biking, and perhaps spend a couple hours a year on minor tweaks.

On the other hand, the time lost being slow away from lights, slow up hills, slow down hills - every-single-day of your bike life, and then being obliged as an essential part of the single-speed lifestyle, spending every other waking moment on the internets, angrily clattering out anti-gear propaganda on their (naturally single keyed) keyboard, one thumpy finger at a time, is massively more ;)

Some like gears some like single speed, enjoy biking whatever takes your fancy

Can anyone please recommend if this is any good?

Or this revolution cross is a much better one?

I have a single speed I put together from a spares and just keep it at work for riding at dinner time. I certainly wouldn't go anywhere with decent hills on it though. Basically single speeds have a sweet spot and for me that's about 44-16 gearing, the problem is if you're a bit racy you'll get annoyed when you spin out at speed or grind up hills. I only average about 15 or 16mph on the single speed but I suppose it's not about Strava times.

This seems to be a serious single speed rather than a fashion item. I like my SS but only for a commute route and on quiet ( pre 7am ) route to work. Pulling out to into traffic or onto a roundabout o ( on a hill) is a pain and not worth the alleged saving it n weight and maintenance. I have had so many back wheel punctures requiring wheel removal and then realignment to get the correct chain tension.
Only advantage of a single gear is you will get fitter .

Manual chain tensioning: very good point.

Or have a bike and get fit. Minimal maintenance and running costs (unlike a car) no road tax and little (if any) insurance. Plus not polluting the planet. Plus you don't have to have a lot of space to keep it.

Schemes like that are good, but often you have to pay RRP of the bike. Can be better (particularly if you pay tax at 20%) to get an end of season bike (retailers always have sales at end of summer beginning or autumn before new season models are announced) which could see you save up to 50% on RRP.
