    First race on my SS.

    Did my first SS race on sunday. Here in the Texas series is an open singlespeed class. There were about 8 in the class that day.

    Dropped the chain about 20 yards from the start . Luckily after fumbling around getting it back on it never fell off again.

    Climbing was seriously hard at race pace. Yes there was climbing in a texas race...

    I'll post some pics when they come online.

    Me too

    Congrats on your ride. Hope you enjoyed it. My first race on my SS was this past Saturday. The Whiskey Off-Road in Prescott, AZ. 9th out of 9 in the SS open. Not a single crash or mechanical; just wish I had a lower gear ratio. Those hills are tough and 34:20 wasn't low enough (I know, what a wuss)--I usually ride 34:18 here in Tucson.
