How many of you run single speed for Dual Slalom?

HEY HEYHEYHEYH3Y! I'M GEARED AND GOING SINGLE SPEED THIS YEAR DAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED REP I NEED REP I N33333333333333DDDDDDD REPZ!
I was under the impression you had to run gears for slalom or 4x, but as usual im probably wrong hahaha.
I think I am going to run a 29er fixie set up, or maybe even a coaster brake.
I hear chicks dig it
Ha, I actually saw a dude trying to slalom the other day on a rigid xc 29er. On our really tight pump track style slalom. That day was the suck for that guy.
I heard that that is no longer the case since they are trying to get the BMX/Dirt Jump guys into it to help grow the scene or something....
Now.... I will be running SS for now (haven't before) and will switch to geared if I feel that SS is really holding me back.
Yep, they changed the rule last season. Single speed is now legal for dual. In fact, I raced my cruiser in one race last season and actually ran over the original poster (dan_wask). Little bastard ended up winning because he got up faster than me. I'm old.
Wow what a ridiculous rule that you can't run SS. Good tor them that's it's changed though.
Im gonna go single. But it does get tricky in certain situations. I think if you can rail tight berms at speed you can do well with a single, the only issue would be getting a good snap out of the start. So then you think, why not run a semi easy gear to favor the good start? Which I kind of wanna do, but some of these tracks end up having a pretty good decent where a harder gear is key. F**k it, I,m riding trails!!! or go carts
well now that i know SS is legal, i'll be running SS...
this will be my first time ever doing DS - I'm thinking about running 34/16 - I feel like that will give me a good snap out of the gate and still should be able to pedal hard downhill.
Any thoughts on gears ratios?
SS no legal for 4x still? Ghey.
