    SS Gear for Absolute Bikes Flag Race

    What's a suitable SS gear for next weekends race ? 32x ?
    Typically been riding 32x21 for most in PHX and Flag but with the loop only having ~850 vf, it might be way too low...
    thx
    Your limits are both physical and mental. Suffering will help you find and overcome both.

    SS on a 26" or 29er? makes a big difference. which ever your run a 2:1 should be fine unless your lung deprived, then you might want to go up one because you will be doing three laps.
    On a 29er I ride it 32x18t or 19t depending how I feel the day of the event.
