    Lotta climbing but some burly dh for xc, killer views and of course you get to stop by the Brick in Roslyn after the ride.

    That looks great on the map Skooks. You might hit one before Gearz did!!! ;)

    Alas, i'm too short for time so it's an afternoon session at Galby while it's still dry. I'll be thinkin' of ya though. Coming down Jolly will take some sack.

    try a 34 in the back and a 22 in the front..... I dont think you'd have too much fun doing one of times hell rides on a SS bike, unless your Psycho Mike.....

    the way this bike is set up, i couldnt climb very effectively. But i have ridden it all over galbrieth up in b-ham, and had a blast. 21 miles isnt out of my reach, even for the single speed. I just need a good climbing gear, and then everything else is coasting downhill

    No thanx if i ever race it'll be DH. ;) But that day may never come.


    Stick a granny cog in and you're good to go. i always hit a high cadence spin and just take it easy on the climbs, so i can save the gas to have fun on the dh. This is definately going to be a ride focused on speed on the down more than the up.
    If you're serious lemme know, it'll be way too much fun. :D

    And nobody probably will either. It's hard to find riders who like techy dh that you have to climb to. Just the way it is....
    i feel so alone. i'm gonna go cry now.... :( :monkey:
