Win.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Maybe people should post what gearing their bike has when climbing Fromme. No doubt what might be easy on one bike might not be on another.

Maybe we should post our head angles too? And tire choice. And…

;)

34x34 is great…

I have 33 front 34 rear. I struggle a bit but I think it's fitness related, not bike.

My bike's 36 front and 32 rear I think, that plus my chicken legs don't make it an easy climb for me. Maybe I should throw on a 32 front ring…

I'm new to the NSMB site, what are the best places to go for beginners/intermediate? I live in Kitsilano. I'm not looking for intense downhill, more free riding on a back trail with rocks and roots. A few jumps would be nice.

Thanks!!

I disagree. There is a discontinuity in the third derivative of your power ratio function. Try using a forier series or buying some small block 8's (2.1 ones for sure) and sanding down the middle knobs.
