No thnaks  on that gearing. Thats sick. I would spin myself out in no time. The serpentine method actually works. Did it a little bit in some Georgia climbs. It helps me recover from spinning  too much. I think some of the Georgia climbs were at 11% ( ???). Doesn't seem like much compared to this LA climb. Maybe my memory is off.  That LA climb is 32%, thats some steep shiznits.

the vid would be cool if not for the god awful music..holy crap it's like a bunch of lounge singers decided to go for a leisurely ride in the park on beach cruisers...:p

The climbs on the dung beetle was enough for me thanks..conquering climbs does little to nothing for me..the reward on the other side is always worth it..but, i'd leave this LA climb alone, personally anyway..lol
When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..

zen.
