I don't want to ***** foot around so just a quick Q? What gear ratio are you guys riding at the trails? I know it is relative to your style and stenght etc but, i want to get a ballpark figure. I've been riding mostly at bootleg since i rebuilt the rockhooper for trails. 32x17 and am pushing it. Sometimes literally up thesteepest of hills. The one ride i took it out at cottonwood it felt like i was riding on the road for the most part. Is there one to settle on or do you change out cogs for ides? since my bike is a convert i use a tensioner and could gear lower a bit i guess? Then again one time over a year ago i came across a guy who was riding the 2 to 1 ratio at cowboy trails? is that hard or what DOH!
