    Wilderness 101 Gearing

    I asked this in the enduro forum but only had one responce. Figured you guys may be able to help out a bit more. Whats the normal 29er W101 gearing. For what its worth, I've done Cohutta on a 34-20 which was perfect, and Lumberjack 100 on a 32x17 which turned out to be a bit tall. Both setups netted just over 8 hours at both courses. I was wondering what you guys would recommend for W101.

    I think when I did it, I had a 32x17 or 18. W 101 is hard for gearing. The first half othe race is kind of rolling and you spin a lot. The 2nd half is lots of climbing.

    That was on my 29er

    Wow, Cohutta - that's a pretty tough area to ride.............this old man will stick to a geared bike for that kind of riding......
