Tom and Jim both did very well with ungeared 29" unicycles. I take it that there is enough uphill riding that 36" does not have much (or any?) real advantage on this course?
The average grade appears to be 6.1%. I guess that is steep enough to keep the 36" cyclists from just riding away from the smaller wheels. In this case a light unicycle might have an advantage.
The average speed for the leader (Beau) was 8.7 mph. For a 29", I believe that pace would require an average cadence of 96 rpm.
For those who have ridden it, what is the optimal unicycle? Would a light weight (geared?) 29" be best?
