    This list is building nicely! Congrats to those who have knocked it out early...

    I am pretty sure I have seen AR on the SS over the last few weekends. It seems impossible to me. Gonna get the "X2" this weekend. I hope...

    Just fyi, I do not at all recommend trying for the challenge till the dirt dries out a bit...I came down Dogmeat today and the mud was thick and plenty...I think no dabbing now might be somewhat impossible. Cheers

    I gave it a shot today. I had gone up Kennedy and came down Dogmeat. It was muddy in spots, but the mud seemed to come off the tires fairly well when I hit the firm spots. When I got to the top of Overgrown I decided to give it a shot and head back up. It wasn't as bad as I thought but I still dabbed 3 times. The muddy spots were too much on the climb. The upper portion felt really good. Overall, it was a great day to ride.

    Nice try Craig for such a crappy day! Only a 3 dabber on a muddy mess like that is a win in our books!

    Were you out there with a ss or did you bring gears?

    I used gears. My SS is still set up with a 32/17. I'll have to switch it out sometime soon. But first, I think I'll accomplish the challenge with a geared bike.

    Paul, yes I do. Last year I did this on the challenge on a '95 Bontrager with a 3 x 9. The Orbea is a 2 x 10. I think I have a couple lower gears on the Bontrager.

    Good job! Done

    Done... I finally completed the double dogmeat no-dabber. I have tried it a couple times in past years, but always failed. This year I went super slow and pulled it off. I think I fried my granny gear though... it was sucking in the chain pretty bad on the last climb and I had to middle-ring the entire way back to my truck.

    It was sunny when I left my house and then proceeded to rain the entire time I was rolling... and then stopped when I got back to my truck. So you can imagine the climbing conditions were less than stellar. About the .6 mile mark up Dogmeat I literally could not see any knobs on either tire. It was pretty funny.

    Anyway... I hate this climb and I am never doing it again.

    Congrats to all of you that have completed this climb and good luck to everyone that is planning to try it. It is not that bad.

    Hold the phone...are you saying you went up Dogmeat without dabbing, went back down and up and done did it again...what the **** is wrong with you!? HA...nice work on this task in far from ideal conditions. A nice chain suck induced dab near the top would've sucked (literally). (By the way, I was just at the top of El Sereno and it was a blizzard up there)

    Yes... that is what I'm saying.

    2 Dogmeat climbs back to back / no dabs. I stopped at the intersection of Overgrown / Dogmeat to down a gel in between and then rode back up. I am not sure why I thought that was a good idea, especially given the weather. I almost got blown over on the first climb and it took a long time to get all the mud out of my bike.

    I am beat and all I wanted to do was crack open a Pliny afterwards... but it was ~10am and I had to go to work. LOL

    Thanks AR! I was thinking about trying it on my SS in better conditions... but I'd probably need an easier gearing. I doubt I could mash up the last couple steep sections on my 29er running 32x22 without losing traction.

    How low can you gear so it still qualifies as an SS?

    Would me staying in 23 to 32 count? 23t in front...

    Finally this SS can of Dogmeat worms is about to be opened thanks to ask! Right arm and Farm out ! I suppose the current SS "Boss"/ Lilysdad should be consulted?

    haha... I supposed I practically did it SS today too if you count granny gearing most of the climb singlespeeding.

    Dogmeat isn't really ideal for SS. The gearing that I'd have to use to clear it would be so low that I'd have to spin like crazy during the rest of the ride to and from Dogmeat.

    Ugh.. yes..

    Maybe we should set, say 26 gear inches, as a minimum?

    (I am thinking about it as I just set up my light bike as 1x10, and wonder if I can make it. Will try if it dries up a little.)

    We could use surly as a guide. They sell a 22t cog and that is pretty much as large as most manufacturers go. 32x22 is the limit I allow myself on the Lynskey and it works good at Kennedy for me. Name:  1120121646.jpg

    For this challenge, I think it is up to the individual. On a geared bike, I end up in my smallest gear, which is probably smaller than I would use on a ss. There is no way I could clean Dogmeat with the gear I normally use, so I would have to come up with something suitable for the grade if I were to attempt this on a ss. Right now, the largest cog I have is 17t, so if I switch my chainring to a 22t and run a 15t cog, I can match what AR is running.

    Happy Friday !

    What a beautiful day to be out riding. Ran into B. climber today at the intersection of Kennedy and Dogmeat. He was fired up after doing a Sub 20/40. I was fired up for making Dogmeat on the Lynskey @ 32x22. The trail is perfect and I am guessing that Troy has been out there sweeping it off like he did last year as it was spotless and void of even small rocks.Name:  1123121234a.jpg

I'm sure LP is gonna chime in and go fat bike SS. Like I said ... the gates are open ... SS winner announced April 30 2013?

    Yes sir 32x22 like my run on 12/31/2011. No animal here, just a guy obsessed with Dogmeat/The Face as I used to call it...yes since 1996. Using your word "Proper" ... 32x20 would qualify. Hope I can be there when you clean it. LG man and I are headed there tamale. He has some catching up to do!

    WOW!!!!!!!! Well done Ben. Really good stuff. You make all of us "whipper snappers" feel not worthy! So happy you tamed this beast on your SS. Ancient Rascal goes to the top of the list. Lilysdad will make it for sure. He is a super strong rider.

    Thanks Paul. But Adam the double dipper is on top me thinks! We still have over 5 months of this "Gonzoabusive"-LG man ... crap to go along with the 20/40 deal / Kennedy side for the fast tough/semi tough guys!

    Yes, I have one, but I am in no SS form this year.

    IMHO, SS should only count if you're using semi appropriate gearing. Someone asked earlier; 29er-32x22-23 would be the lowest. 26er-32x20. I pick those as gears that ones that would be lower than any sser would normally ride around here. Ssers around here typically run 29er 32x20 or taller for general riding. Some monsters run 2x1 on their 29ers.

    Anyone gonna shoot for Dogmeat tomorrow? 50 mile an hour tail wind should be perfect to get you past those deep muddy sections!

The trail is perfect and I am guessing that Troy has been out there sweeping it off like he did last year as it was spotless and void of even small rocks.
    Damn dude! Congrats! That's just awesomeness and puts you, IMO, a notch above everyone else!

    Thanks man ... but it is what it is. I'm OK on sprinting hills but most of the guys on the list are faster and tougher than I am. That Lynskey is a "cheater climbing bike" and dollars to donuts loads of other riders could jump on it and go clean dogmeat. Yes it climbs even better than you'd think.

    People say that all the time, but in my limited experience it's all engine, with small variances for bike. The others didn't do it on a SS. Faster, stronger, perhaps, but not that day. That's a HTFU moment for sure.

    32x22 is very usable. You can stand and almost walk the bike up trails like Power Pole with the easy peasy gearing. Now if I can ever make it 32x20 a proper SS gear ... then ... that will be somewhat noteworthy. Thanks again IAH.

    All dry and ready to go!

    Dogmeat is dried out but unfortunately still steep and hard to do ! Guess what ... if you can make it to where the rider is in this pic from today and don't mind finishing the rest in various states of blown up ... you will have it made. Rider identity withheld to protect the innocent ! Took the pic from my quit spot on the hill.3rd Annual Dogmeat No Dab Challenge....ahhhh yeah!-1209121148.jpg

    I cleaned it, but it felt like I was cheating because the traction was so good. It may have been my big wheel bike. It was the first time I climbed it on my 29.

    Congrats to you sir ! If you made it before Nov. 23 perhaps #8 should be you and #9 for me?

    You nailed the max pain spot. Although a barney move has bit my a$$ just past that point more than a few times.

    Tomorrow I get X2. I hope...
