Hi guys, I've only ridden DH once. I've got an Ibis HDR that I use for park duty and I currently have a 32 tooth ring. When I was at the park I ended up being in my smallest 2 or 3 cogs the whole time and it resulted in a lot of chain slap and noise due to the chain being so low and close to the chainstay. To fix this I'm going to get a bigger ring (and longer chain) for park use. I'm just not sure if I should go with a 36 or a 38. This ring would go on just for the 2 or 3 times a year that I head up to Highland, so I'm thinking the 38 would be fine, I won't really be riding up any hills with this setup. Whaddya think?
