I have 4 day riding trip to Tsali and likely Ocoee trails. Curious on thoughts on bringing two bikes. My primary ride is a Trek Fuel EX8 so that one is coming regardless - the other is a hand built (well not the frame) single speed.
I mostly ride trails like whitewater center, Lake Norman state park and find myself needing more gearing on the flats/smooth areas - hardly any hills give me trouble. My gearing is 36x20...or 46.8 gear inches when considering the crank. I see most people riding Tsali on a SS are 32x20/18 (41.6 gear inches with the 20t).
I don't have a smaller chainring or a larger cog to lower the gearing on the SS...so do we think Tsali will be to difficult with this gearing - given my riding styles noted above?
