kellyrocheearly

that does look nasty, wonder if its ever been used for a race?
Slapshot

not that I am aware of!!!

They should do a TT!!!!
kellyrocheearly

maybe the Tour of Switzerland or the Giro could be persuaded to take a trip there

13 percent for 10kms-this is why you need PEDS!
kellyrocheearly

just whack on a 36x25 and you'll be grand

yeah...
Austria.

heres the climbbybike info...its a beast.

BAD news for HW. Was just informed that the Austria trip has been cancelled...Im scrambling...and I have a ticket to vienna.

Sad

36x25....


hahahahhahahahhahahahhahahahhahahah

...and a small 2 stroke oil/gas engine.


!
kellyrocheearly

if your only riding that climb alone 36x25 would do the job. Too small a gear equals going nowhere

see one guy there in that link saying he did it on a 39x27 and he only had to stand up for the steepest sections so definetly do it on the 36x25
Slapshot

I will choose the 34x26 for me!

'see one guy there in that link saying he did it on a 39x27 and he only had to stand up for the steepest sections so definetly do it on the 36x25'

Yeah that my be true but he was grinding out speeds of around 5kmph while he was seated.
kellyrocheearly

he probably was crawling but with a slightly lower gear you could ride most of it at about 8-10mph which wouldnt be so bad

I think we two can make a good cycling "couple" Laughing

We definately should do a social ride some time. Do you ride with a club at all?
Slapshot

I normally go out with the people of the Tri/running club of Bishops stortford, there is a cycling club too, but you need mud guards and that sort of stuff, that I donīt like too much!

We should met up in Stevenage, that is in the middle us, and go from there!
crash48

mud guards!

Never.

I feel more strongly about that then anyone does about helmet laws!
kellyrocheearly

i'd put a rear mud gear on my old training bike during the winter but thats about it. Hate the bloody things but its better than the bike being completely destroyed by muck & dirt. Washing the bike on a cold, damp winters day is never fun
crash48

I'll take my hands falling off over mud guards Smile

SPRINTER HERE.. I WILL AVOID !!!!

39 x 25 .. shud be ok..

ciao
cardinal guzman

39 x 29 cos I'm special. Wink

I used to like it as a kid if my rear mudguard came loose and slipped under my back wheel, but then i loved and indeed still do love skidding. Happened to me on ma motorbike once, total engine seizure at 55mph - wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!
