How steep is the planned hill?
I ran a 50-34 11/32 for both my Everesting and hill climb season.
You can easily run a 36 with a wolf tooth not sure what if any advantages there are to an mtb mech
The segment for his attempt was 16.3%, 840m. Average speed of 9.4km/h, 315w.
34 front 40 rear allows you to spin at 88rpm at that speed.
If I decided to do an everesting on a more manageable hill, say 7%, and averaged 220w, I'd do about 14km/h, which would be ok on a 39 front 28 rear.
Finding the hill really is a big part of the challenge.
I’ll probably have another go and try a best time attempt. Last time was more make sure I complete it.
He averaged 315w during an everesting attempt?!
315w for each uphill bit.
