Hi Jay! I'm not joining the bike race this Sunday. Well, I'm going running. What a Face

32x16 (34x18) will do. If you're not used to it, I suggest to stick to what you're using now. It took me a couple of rides to get used to that gear from 32x18.

hey jay, originally i was going to use 32x16. i used 18 relatively flat courses a couple of times and wound up overspinning on the flats. but with probably muddy conditions and all those switchbacks an 18 might be ok as well. i''ll probably flip a coin on saturday to decide haha

Stick to your current ratio! Last-minute changes and kalikot before the race can potentially backfire! Hehe.

Who else is running SS on Sunday?

We (not MH ha) will be giving unofficial prizes to the top 3 finishers Wink

tolits most likely 32x18 sila, although si sup naka 34x18. si dandan yata 32x17.

ako naman sa last 2 races sa timberland 32x16 sa head for the hills at 22x16 sa splash (tamad pumiga kaya spin nalang hehe)

yari tayo sa susunod. si ernie nagtatanong ulit sa SS. baka sa next race SS na siya. gulp! Shocked

i see...i tried simulating 32x16 (4th cog)..no shifting from afp-monterey to c-5...yung mga konting akyat dun sa montery, i found myself pushing on the pedals and pulling on the handlebar really really hard...sobra nga yata 16.

thanks.

re: ernie hortaleza..kala ko nga he would join the SS categ last KOM...good news actually since tingin ko m ay nakaka-pansin na sa SS at lalong dumadami ang interested. Smile

Yep, good news for the category!

Hector had a mechanical problem during the all terrain race. Sayang, dun sana niya (natin) makita kung hanggang saan makakayanan ang karera kasama mga geared bikes on a "relatively flat" course.

Musta karera niyo Jay, Manito, Agu, King and Bryan? Meron pa daw nakita na isang SS si Agu; naka Marin daw.

Jaymz, New Balance MT 804. Nice shoes! Yung sole parang knobby tires din Laughing

On mountainous courses, I would use a 32X20 or 34X21 but on rolling stuff, go with a 2 to 1 ratio... (34X17)
