Mrs came along so did Shaws Ridge and then out through Blue Gum Swamp.The swamp is nicely overgrown into double track. Did you ride down bees nest? I love that hill, you can hit stupid speeds before the hairpins
I'm on dad duty all weekend looking after my daughter and one of her friends. Went to jellybean pools and a drive into the park, I saw 6 'riders' walking up that hill from the creek crossing. Personally I finding it more taxing walking and pushing a bike than riding.
I had 1x10 with a 42 extender and it was absolutely fine, the only difference I think between the two is the 36 on the 10 speed versus the 37 on the 11 speed and it makes for a bees dick when you're in those low range gears. To be honest the gap from 36 to 42 was never enough on some big hills!
3x is looking good again
I did consider the ST from Halcyon Road then Bees Nest but she is happier on the flatter stuff. Nevertheless the descent down Shaws Ridge isn't her favourite and was pretty dry and loose today.
The climb out of the creek crossing into or out of the park is a low gear grinder. I find the way in harder and sure feel rooted by the time I reach the small car park near the end of Little Moab.
Good going sir. I'm trying to find good reasons to upgrade but 22/34 gets me up almost anything in the Mt's. Bedford Creek with no dabs is still the one to beat and it has kicked my butt quite a few times.
