Will you need more than granny gear at the event?
Hey tRicky it says the short course "Short course will be relatively flat." hope it is not fake news!
"Relatively" is a relative term.
Okay then not on the long course at Banyowla. I'm almost tempted to take the Anthem with its triple front chain ring given the XTC is out of action but I've already arranged a spare wheel and I don't know that all the chain rings work on the Anthem anyway. Plus I have some dumb audit to do so don't have time to look at it.
All assuming I'm not too sick to ride tomorrow.
