I was just using the numbers as a reference for your 1x9
SS's are great, you pick a gear that will allow you to climb as many hills as possible and maybe have to walk one or more depending on the distance. Most of the races the hills are fast enough going down you rarely pedal anyhow unless it is a flat race.
