Had some gears no high & no low, rode to 62km before the hanger parted company & the RD was playing 'Duelling Banjos" in the rear spokes.
Hitched a ride to Eumundi where the mechanic made me into a single speed, was too slow & had to abandon
I'll be there next year.
As long as it wasn't the Hetchins! Looking at the ride it would of been quite double on a singlespeed.
I conteplated the Hetchins but I need to tune it, wasn't ready for a 160 yet. The ride for you on a single would be dooable as you say, no worse than the E'roica
