    FS or SS at Warrior Creek

    It's been a while since I've biked there. I remember that the flow is amazing and I want to say it's pretty smooth on the descents without that long climbs. Do I bring the 22lb SS HT or 31lb FS trail bike?

    How is your cardio? If decent, the HT I would say. I run a 31lb full squish.... But I am old and fat

    Cardio is pretty good, but the SS will drain my endurance quicker if I ride it the way I normally do - lots of standing. Looks like it's only 829' ascent which doesn't seem like much over 10.7 miles. If I remember correctly too it's smooth with not a lot of trail chatter?

    For around here, it is very smooth. No sustained climbing. Very flowy. Nothing that "deserves" FS, but trails are what you make them and there are opportunities to play.

    Had my first ride there over the winter, excellent trails. HT or rigid is more than enough but HT is pretty much ideal.

    Ss is a blast on WC, but it's closer to 1000 ft and 13.5 miles. Add another 2+miles if you add headwaters.

    HT is fine (and fun). I did the Wilkes 100K a few years back on an XC 29er (Niner Air 9) and never felt like I needed suspension (or a lot of gears). But a dropper is fun for the curvy flow sections if you have one!
