    Anybody ever SS Tsail in NC?

    Can somebody tell me how the SSing is at Tsali in NC.Theres a NORBA race there in 3 weeks and I've never been. I hear it fast,smooth,and not bad climbing for the area. I'd like to ride 32x16 and wonder if this is a bad idea.

    Yes.

    2:1 should be fine.

    Rode it last year during the race and twice at other times. 32x16 is fine.
    Tsali is a blast on s/s.

    Good luck.

    I SS Tsali all the time, 2:1 is a fine gear for cruising Tsali but, at races you see some big gears (34:16 is common). Tsali is 90% "flatish" and the usual race course has only 2 substaintial climbs neither are that long.
    I may show for this race too. If I go Ill probably ride rigid and 34:16.

    Thanks for the info guys! I'm going to make a real push with my event planner to make it for the April 4th race. I'm having trouble finding info about this event, there isn't much at the Cane Creek site.Is there a website for the Tsali race?

    Apparently. NOC is not involved with the race this year. You can register on www.active.com
    and find race info on www.goneriding.com.
