    Whistler SS? what gear combo...?

    Sorry, another question about SS at Whistler.
    I'm planning on not converting my fr hardtail to geared for Whistler.
    Right now I'm running a high 39/16 ratio for East Coast.
    I'ma going to be in the Bike Park for dh/fr,
    but also hit some North Shore trails, and hopefully some street.
    Any suggested gear combos to use?
    Thanks all.

    Big is fast!

    The park is almost entirely down hill you can run a pretty huge gear if you want, But the other trails and stunts would probably be easier in a real low gear. If I took my SS I'd take two gears and maybe two chains to make the switch easy. I have ridden both but was on rental FS bikes. Whistler Rocks!
