I haven't been riding much since the 24 hours of Old Pueblo - taking a breather. I have been out a couple of times on my single speed. The
I headed out today to do a couple of laps on the race course and see how it was on the SS. I've only ridden the stock 32X18 gear so far. The first climb was great. I was riding some of the steep stuff I thought I'd be walking - so far so good. After about 10 minutes of cranking up hill out of the saddle I wasn't feeling so hot and had slowed to a crawl by the time I reached the flat section at the top. On the descent my legs were shaking a little and instead of a second lap I limped home - woops - smoked!
SS school was in session! I added 3 teeth to the back and will try it again on Wednesday.
