    Assuming i’m running a 30T front & 36T rear. From memory most of it is ok with just a steep bit at the end?

    5 extra cheesewang points to the first person to berate 1 x 10 drivetrains.

    you will be fine up to the cafe and just past. everyone gets off at the same point.

    the road climb up to the trail head might get you blowing out of your ass though 😉

    Gears – you don’t need gears. Singlespeed is where real men get their points.

    your memory is bad!
    you realise it’s a mountain? 😀
    yes it’ll be a stiff pull when you’re not on your feet with your bike on your shoulder.

    Not to mention the path ‘improvement’ works that have renedered it almost un-rideable up to Clogwyn Station from just past the halfway cafe.
