I'm racing Sea Otter SS for the first time this weekend (Cat 2). I've raced plenty of XC, but haven't raced SS before.
I've been riding exclusively SS since September, and find that 32x19 on my 29er is pretty good for most of the Bay Area trails I ride. I was thinking of racing 34x20 for Sea Otter.
Any thoughts on whether that will be too spinny? The course profile looks like there aren't too many flats. FWIW, I'm nowhere close to peak condition right now , so I would rather err on the side of too easy a ratio - just not so easy that I look like the roadrunner for most of the race.
