pretty darn sure i'll be down there. the lap will be more ss friendly then previous years. gersib ran 34x18 or 19 and wanted a bit lower gear i think. its easier/funner then hitchcock for sure. it was a super fun ride to caves. we saw the intersection of two unmaintained roads. no traffic. can't say i'd seen that before.

hey scott -- i've got an extra 19t cassette cog you can try (or even just have -- i don't need two of 'em). give me a call on my cell (310-3316) and we can figure out the transfer.

fyi -- i was running a 34/19 on the trails at indain caves. it was good, but pretty darn big for some of the climbs. for racing, i'd probably do a 32/19 to make the climbs a little more do-able on laps other than the first.

cheers,
mg
