Are singlespeeds faster?

Some good reading over at Dirt Rag about singlespeeds vs geared bikes.

Are singlespeeds faster? For me, the answer is a resounding YES! I have alway raced and ridden better without gears. How about you?

I train on my singlespeed, and it has definately made me a faster rider. When the easy way out, by shifting, on a tough climb is taken away, you have to get stronger. I think that I will race singlespeed next year.
