    SS in North Carolina

    I'm new to this SS thing only been out a couple times in the snow up here in North Bay.
    We are heading to NC on April 2 for a few days of riding. A yearly tradition for my old university friend and myself. First rip was for the Atlanta Olympics but we spent our whole time biking in NC. Anyway. I want to take the single speed and figure it shouldn't be a problem riding it rigid in Tsali but what about Pisgah. Should I bring different gears. I run 32x16 now. Are any of you guys running those big trails on a SS.
    Just wondering what I should plan on. BTW I will have a Psylo SL for Pisgah.

    Also the SS is an old Norco team issue which was used new on my first trip down in 96.
    Thanks

    I run a 32x18 at Dupont. That's what I'll run at Pisgah if I ever make it up that far too.
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.

    I don't know but it can't be far. We always go straight down through Buffalo. Mapquest can probably direct you.

    I've got 32 16 now and was thinking of bringing the 18 tooth with me. Suffer on some of the downhills but suffer a lot less on the up hills.
