    SS gearing at Fair Hill

    Just wondering what gear you guys are running at Fair Hill? From my recollection there's not alot of hills or rocks, was wondering if a 32x20 is standard? Thanks.

    depends on the bike and the distance.

    For 1.5-2 hour rides on a 29er you could easily ride a 32x17 or 32x18. For the FH 50, I am going to a 19, @ 35+ mi no matter how gentle the course is I am going to want something easier.

    In my opinion and based on a 29" wheel a 20t will have you spinning like a mad man.

    (all numbers based on a 29" wheel)
    Don't hate on the minivan!!!!!!!

    just thought id chime in in case anyone looks this up for next year....


    i think it depends more on the rider than anything. I ran a 32x19 and felt it was great... it was a 20 mile race and while it was my first race i think it is a good gear(for me) for that course.

    i asked a few guys at the start line and 2 of them were 32x20 with a couple 32x18s in there as well.

    32x20 is nice for me.
