    Back to SS riding

    After a couple of months riding a 2x9 setup on my 29er, I swapped back to SS, and loving it!

    Here is my bike



    And here's a couple of photo's of me testing out the bike on a local road event.
    I am the guy in the blue and orange kit.

    Either those guys really suck or you're one of the strongest SSers running some crazy gear ratio.

    It was just a local cyclist awareness event, so the guys was not out trying to prove a point. So ride was mostly relaxed.

    You gotta disclose stuff like that, lest some noob thinks going SS gives you some sort of magical powers to keep up with geared roadies.

    Whenever I see an escort moto I assume it's game on.

    Nice Scandal.

    Welcome back! NIce rig you got there! What kind of finish is that? Seems like a weathered black? Camo black? Whatever it is, i like it!

    I'm also very curious about those Q-rings. I had a biopace crankset in the late 80's but i was too young to know what the difference is with round rings or i just didn't care. Rotor cranks are sick!
