are there any ss crossers out there? i plan on racing ss this fall, and it is my first time doing cyclocross. i don't want to be bothered with maintaining a geared bike, and i enjoy the simplicity. i've been riding fixed for a while, so i figure this should help, as i can spin like a mofo thanks to hills w/out coasting.
my main question is about gear ratios. what is a good gear ratio for cx racing? i live in southern wisconsin if that helps at all. cx races are mostly flat though anyways, right? i was thinking 40-18 or 42-18.
