btw, the SS XO1 cross bike I built back up has a 38/16 and that allows me to cruise at 20 with spurts up to 24-25 and still climb pretty good.
Yeah, but I'm a weakling. 32/32 or 32/34 skirts along blowing up my knees territory for me. Maybe this year I'll get strong enough to think about SS, but I'm not betting on it.
