There are some steep hills here on Phuket, hills that we figured would prove to be something of a challenge on a single speed bike. We have found that with a certain level of commitment to spinning the legs it is possible to exceed 60 KMH on the flat on the Alta bikes, so when faced with the steepest hills one is ever likely to encounter it came as no surprise that they were a bit of a struggle. We are pleased to say that on a 30 KM loop designed to take in a few challenging climbs we rode all but 200 metres. The overall consensus of opinion though is that for the long ride a lighter gearing will be beneficial.
