    Any singlespeeders doing the no brakes race at Stratham Hill?

    If so, what gearing? I have a 32-20 on a 29r and not sure if I'll spin out too easily. Just seeing what others have run in the past.

    I run 32-16 on my 26er SS and will probably do the race on this bike. That probably equates to about 32-18 for you. A buddy runs 32-18 on his 29er in this area. There are some hills that hurt with my gearing but I wouldn't want anything easier for the pedaling sections especially for a race. Of course it all depends on how strong you are, right?

    I guess a 32-18 would seem logical as I'm good with the 32-20 at Ft Rock.
