    A 39-34 with a 700x23 tire, which gives 30.1 inches--supergranny. But it was still pretty tough after 12.5K feet.

    Nice work Dalai. You must be pretty fit to ride Evans and then Pikes in rapid succession. I rode with an MTB cassette, and had a much easier gear than you did: 39-34.

    Cyclart has been painting frames since back in the 80's. They're not cheap or fast, but they do beautiful work.
