- Single Speed Cross Bike.
Why’s that then? Genuine question, did one race last year on over 70” and although it was too big, it didn’t seem that bad
im not particularly fast but raced plenty of mtb on SS and never had much trouble as you can pace yourself a bit but cx is a different beast and is more full on and demanding, one minute you can spin out on some flat tarmac, then the next can be on some brutal climb in mud which i just cant manage in that gear and running faster. i prefer to spin more as less painfull but some can manage the high gears ok.Posted 4 years agoIAMember
39:18 as it’s used for commuting and there’s a fairly savage 15% climb on the way home. I was doing it on 42:18 which is a bit more all-round usable, but I was nearly sick everytime I got to the top of the climb.
And yes yes I know you’re supposed to feel sick on CX bike, but really, at home time on a friday I CBA!Posted 4 years ago
