With the 29er in 1:1, the 137s are a good climbing length, I only had to stand on the steeper parts. I may try some big climb races with that setup. Also the 137s are a good compromise for leverage vs spinning when just riding along in high-gear, and I was able to smoothly run out some hills because they were easier to spin than the 150s.
I also rode several of the miles on a often-rough dirt railbed that still has the rail ballast in places, so big gravelly parts. This is only place I missed the 150s, but it was "totally doable", just more effort to crank though those bits.
I'm definitely leaving the 137s on this wheel.
