    Sack Up.

    I was having a tough time pushing a 32/18 gear on my local trail so I figured I'd try a 20 tooth rear. I called my LBS and asked them to get me one. So it'll be here this week. But today I decided to be a man and go ride the 32/18 and stop whining like a little *****. Guess what ? The more you ride single speed, and the more you attack the trail, the better you get. I'm going to have a useless 20 speed freewheel The moral to this story is located in the title line ahahahhahahah

    What a little b!tch. I'm riding a 33/16 in the hills!

    Yeah, my first few rides i was like "WTF???", but after sticking with it, I cant quit doing it. You'll be amazed how much stronger you;ll get.

    Between Atlanta and N. GA. Foothills of the Blueridge Mtns. Plenty of decent climbing, but nothing super insane. I'll hit further N. GA someday on the SS when I grow another ball or 2.
