    How many teath?

    hey

    I am getting ready to race in a local super D race here in NC, it supposed to be about about 1 mile long almost completly DH. I am using a single 32t right now, but I end up running out of gears.

    So, should I get a road cassette or a bigger chain ring(how many teath)?

    Thanks, Beaver

    I have ridden the trail before but not the actual course... but its all pretty dang smooth for being a MTB trail.

    sounds like a 36t is what I should start looking for, maybe a 38t

    A road cassette will do absolutely nothing about running out of gears.
