    Jon H. rode round on 32/19 with proper normal 29" wheels.
    Amy also rode 32/19 with proper normal 29" wheels.

    36:21 on 29" wheels.

    Seemed about right with just a few bits I couldn't get up, and still managing a reasonable pace on the fire roads.

    Until about mile 95 that is, when I started going very slowly indeed, although that was fixed with a fig roll!

    Out of interest, what ratio did you use?

    32:18 29er rigid – cleared all climbs except one loose, steep zig-zag and one of trail centre climbs at end on loose sand/rocks – I could hardly walk up it!

    Thx all. Some useful pointers there for a training bike I'm considering.

    34:18 on 26" although I normally ride 34:16 on that bike. I thought it would be a good good idea to ease it up a bit and what a good idea that was!

    32:18 on a 29er, this year. (About the same as 32:16 on a 26er.)
    32:17 on a 26er, last year.

    There's quite a lot of climbing, but you also need the slightly higher gear for the gravelly tracks. I decided to trade off getting off to walk a little earlier against a slightly higher top speed.

    34:21 on my 29er. Ran 34:19 last year but thought I'd make it a little easier. I've always been better at spinning for speed than powering up climbs so it suited me well
