    We can do Ronde van Cowtown in a smaller group. We were going to do it last fall but we were hit by torrential downpour by the time we got to Centre Street.

    Short cage does work on a 32, I’ve got the same setup and on a 52-36 on a couple different bikes, just make sure you have enough chain in the event you cross chain.

    Good luck lilmira!

    Interesting, big on big shouldn't happen with synchro shift but when I'm out of oxygen at 3000m and seeing things I may just manage to force it lol.

    I'm thinking it'll clear. There should be no need to change chain length assuming you're not going to crosschain it big-big. I swapped a 32T cassette onto my bike for Maui (26% climbs are gross) and had no issues.

    I'm switching to smaller chainrings for sure so I gain two teeth on the back and lose two on the front. I do have a new chain sitting around so it's no big deal. Not having to touch the rear mech helps.

    Attempted highwood from the south on sunday. got rained on for ~30 km, froze my ass off on the downhills, and ran into snow ~2 km from the top. Sounds like it's walkable to the summit from north approach, but needs at least another week in my mind to do gate to gate to gate

    ugh, what a difference a day makes. on saturday, i did the highwood from the south gate, it was +25 the whole way, no rain and very little breeze. i had taken all this extra thermal gear with me too, but didn't use. same snow 1.5-2k from the top.

    More shitty weather in the forecast for this weekend. Might have to postpone this weekend's Highwood ride and do it next week.

    Thanks for reporting. I was actually wondering about it the other day too.
