Are you running 2:1 on that monkey? If so, do you happen to know the average speed you roll when just comfortably spinning along?

Trying to decide upon my TI gear (though I'm on a 26" 1x1) of 2:1 or one tooth taller. Tough call with no gravel to test on, just pavement and many many many hills.

Thanks,
Thad in TN

I'm running a 34x18 and this may be my TI gearing....that depends on how it feels during Pauls Kick In Da Junk 150 in march.

I'm such a dumbass sometimes:) Average rolling speed without the hipityhops....is a comfortable 12.7mph on flats....

Thanks for the info. Not ever having ridden a 29'er or a 700 singlespeed, but watching my buddies pull away when similarly geared has me wondering about averages.
34x18 on my 26'er for 91 miles (30 of those on singletrack rest on pavement) left me with a 13 average, so 34x17 seemed like I could hold that with less effort. Though riding 34x17 now has me wondering about something a bit taller. Singlespeed, where we get to regret or praise our decisions over and over and over again. :-)
See you in April.
