Every rider should have to get on one to learn how to ride properly, especially a single speed. Once you learn to ride single speed you can do anything. I see to many beginners that spin and carry no momentum, with no momentum you can't climb or roll over things properly.
Rigid teaches you what you can roll over and ride its just a lot tougher on the body. Makes a person way smoother once you put a suspension fork on!
My thoughts! What are yours?
