Hey folks, I don't normally post in this forum even though I do ride fixed/single all the time. Nice to meet you all and sorry for posting the redundant topic of gearing.
Every summer I partake in the WAM 300, its a 3-day road event, 100 miles a day, from Traverse City to Chelsea, MI. I'm hoping to do it single-speed next year, and want some advice on gearing. What is a good gearing for long distance riding? The first 100 are pretty hilly, the second and third 100 are rolling with some long, flat, fast stretches.
I've never set this bike up for road cycling - only fixed and cyclocross. I'm kind of out in the dark on this, and would rather not pay for 3 chainrings just to try out different gearings, if it can be avoided. What do you guys think?
