This will make the 4th different bike I've ridden for D2R2 over the last 9 years.

She is an '89 Team Stumpjumper that is kitted out as a tribute to the '84 Specialized race team bikes. Frame is Tange Prestige tubing.

The usual Redline . . .

. . . with same gearing as last year. Man, that 34-32 makes all the difference between a death march and an enjoyable day!

I'm signed up for the 100k but may go ahead to the 115.

Very nice! Last time I did the D2R2 (100K in 2009, I think), I rode it on this:



I signed up back in June for the 100K. Unfortunately, I forgot to check my calendar as I realized after I took the plunge that my wife & I are heading to Wellfleet for a week the day of the event. I am debating doing the 40 mile ride and heading to the Cape after....

P.S. For gearing, I ran a 1x8, 36 chainring and a 12/28 cassette. Never walked.

P.P.S. If I do head out for the ride, I'll be on this:

For those that know nothing of the ride

A little bit about the ride and rationale for equipment choice?

I am on these roads daily - with a Gaulzetti bicycle and some Challenge 23mm clinchers. There's no need to gear up (equipment) for this event.

It's a 100-115-150-180k bicycle ride, with approximately 70% of the routes on large-aggregate eastern gravel and some stiff climbing. Best option is 32-35mm tires with minimal tread and low gearing; I ran 34-29 low last year and that worked well. Going with 39-29 this year because I can't be bothered to change my crank. I'm running 35mm Paselas on a cross bike.

I agree with RS

Road bike with 34 low front ring and anywhere from a 28-32T low rear cog.

Having done this type of ride on a cross bike and a road bike, I prefer the nimbleness of a road bike and the braking performance of road calipers.

25mm tubulars are Baller.

Same. But you have to admit there are sections that are less awkward on wider tires. A small portion of the total ride, but I don't think I'd ride 23s on those jeep tracks up in VT.
