Okay, I've been SS'ing since August 2009. and really happy about it too!!! One bike, a light Ti cross-country set-up, about 20lbs (kinda went weight weenie here...) but I decided to add another SS bike and got me an Evil Sovereign frame (already close to 2.5lbs more than my Ti frame) and I'm starting to build it now. With what I'm putting on it, I don't think it's gonna be less than 24 or 25 lbs. I'm geared 32X18 on my light bike. Should I gear "easier" (like 32X19) for a heavier bike??? I just don't know what the effect of a heavier bike will be on my ability to climb... oh, 26" bikes, I'm in the North-East, ride in Vermont sometimes, (but I'm from north of Montreal) have never shuttled, even during my 3 weeks trip in Colorado, if this means anything...
Thanks for your input,
