    the "World champs" I've been to are less about the "gear ratio" and more about ABVs...

    that said, I'm looking at going with a group...

    I'm not a one speed guy, but the soil around here in dusty and favors wider low knob treads. The time of year the race is scheduled for could still be dusty or could provide hero dirt. It just depends on if it rains the day before the race or not. Should be a rad event. The weekend after the race will likely be the Halloween Cross Crusade race, another great spectacle that could make the trip that much more worth while.

    Bike is set up single speed now

    Currently riding my beloved minion/aggressor combo, but might spring for a forecaster/ardent race combo for this ride

    Current gearing is going to be too light for bend, but Iíll probably just bring a bunch of cogs and see what works

    The race promoter is organizing a series of events in the week leading up to the race. One of those is a bike pub crawl to a few spots in Bend and one of those stops is our tool shop. We've got some free hooch lined up and have invited some F'ing single speed builders to come show off some bikes. We will also be making chotchskiezes on the mill to hand out.

    Can I pay you for some tools and pick them up in person? Assuming your decade chain tool is available
