I've recently finished my build for a hardtail mtb, and it's brilliant, but, one thing I've been wondering is having a single speed Chainset, I more than likely won't get one now as I've just forked out buying a 3 speed,
But just wondering any benefits and dis-advantages of having one on a mountain bike, as Im running a 9 speed and never change gears on the front.
