    Speaking of the Barn Burner: SS Gearing?

    What's a good recommended gear for a 29er, planning on riding solo?

    I ran 32x18 last year, but I wasn't solo. If doing it solo, I'd probably start 18, but get ready to swap for a 20 by the 3rd lap on. Yes, this ride has lots of fireroad, but there are some hills that are gonna make you whimper just a little by your second lap.
