I'm going to be doing my first organized century for the LIVESTRONG Challenge in September and am just curious as to what long distance riders use for typical gearing.... other than you crazy fixed/SS folks out there ... I've done 60 mile flat rides with a mile 8.5% grade climb at the end no problem and I'm running a 38/46 cyclocross crank with an SRAM 12-26 cassette.
I'm sure it depends on the course itself (duh), but what have others experienced for as a typical course, especially for these charity type rides? The route isn't posted yet for the ride I'm going to be doing unfortunately. I'm not really concerned about it... I'm my biggest competition and stuff like this drives me to better myself... I'm just curious as to what other's have seen and what kinds of gearing they've used.
