And with discs nogal , strange he looks reasonably sane.

 

The gear ratio's look fairly mountainbikeable, any one feel like counting and working them out...

 

Hats off to him if he finished all 8 days, any mtb race on a single speed would be bladdy hard, never mind the Epic

I agree starclassic - when I was suffering up some of those hills in my granny, imagine this poor guy. (Is the guy in the picture the Saffa or the Yank?)

This guy had a mad partner as well. Both of them completed the Epic on their rigid singles speeds. Apparently the bikes they were riding( Independent) is quite a big name and manufacturer in USA.
