    cleveland. i'm doing it singlespeed, any suggestions on ratio? i'm guessing it's not flat and fast so i won't be at too much of a disadvantage.

    No not really fast and flat...... AS they say it contains a bit of everything. Not sure what the others are using on their singles, I ride gears.

    What class you racing in?

    c/novice. i've raced in some "bandit" / "underground" cross series, but this will be my first official race. racing with way more people than i'm used to (and with people who i don't really know), i figure that the beginner class will be a good bet.

    42/20 with 38c tires and 175mm cranks on my San Jose has gotten me onto the "B-class" podium in two of the BikeAuthority races. I initially was worried that this gearing was too low, but it has worked out pretty well for me so far.
