As I see it, hugely lower times on geared 36er's over 100 mile efforts come only from Supermen/women. If ones average cadence is 100 rpm ungeared over 100 miles with maximum effort, I would be surprised if that same person's ave. cadence would approach 80 rpm's geared (or some ratio thereabouts).
Math questions;
100 miles in 10 hours on ungeared 36er. What is the average cadence?

As someone who's not (yet) on this list (my longest ride: 77 miles), I humbly suggest that the guni's faster pace, while more tiring, allows one to reach the 100/10/1 goal with less chafe/saddle-soreness, and possibly more rest stops. Here's a little mph/rpm chart.

I did Ungeared 11.1 MPH average...that translate into 103 RPM average.

Munimaq...would you give us your Geared average for your Century yesterday?

I think that terrain is the big ??? factor. Wind direction too. Give any of us a flat/downslope and stiff tailwind and we'd smoke that goal on a 36 guni. Beating against the wind on an upgrade w/36 guni is a recipe for burnin' thighs. In this latter scenario, I'd pick my ungeared any day. Who ya gonna be - a Lance (spinner) or a Jan (churner)?

I vote to remove the numbers, the names are not in chronological order in any sense (especially the first 20 or so), just the order that people added them to the list, and in some cases people put their names in the middle not the bottom when adding.

It would be neat to have a chronological list, but adding numbers here just gives the wrong information.

Congrats on your century by the way!

FIFY. As with the alpahbetizing, not sure why the royal we can't resist the impulse to "improve" the list. Best way to improve the list is to get more names on it. Congrats to Erich on that aspect of improvement.

Unfortunately, I had a problem with my computer and did not get good data. The sensor moved and was intermittently working. Last year on the same course my average speed for the 100 miles was 14.4 mph. I think my riding time this year was very similar. I did take longer rest stops, especially at the beach, since I was not under pressure to beat 10 hours - I did that last year.

If my numbers are correct, that correspond to 89 RPM (cranks , not wheel) average if Claude was riding on high gear all the time , and 6.94 hours on the saddle.

Great job Claude!!!, that's two hours less than my saddle time on my Un-geared ride.

I did it!

I rode 100.1 miles solo in one day on December 28, 2010. I am a type one insulin dependent diabetic, so it was quite the accomplishment for me. It took me 13 hours and 11 minutes, longer than my goal. I rode from Anniston, Alabama to Atlanta, Georgia along the Cheif Ladiga and Silver Comet trail system. Along the way, I encounter about 30 miles of ice and snow covered trail. It had snowed the week before, but I had assumed that the snow had melted, when in fact some had melted and then refroze, making the conditions really difficult for miles along the foothills along the boarder. Along many parts of the snow covered trail, I had to ride in a tire track outlined by an icy ridge on each side of the track. Needless to say, this slowed me down considerably and resulted in a couple good crashes. The most challenging part of the ride was when at the end my odometer only read 97.1 miles. I turned back down the trail and rode 1.5 miles out and back to complete the 100 mile ride. It would have been so easy to give up at that point and grab a cup of coffee and a hamburger! I also am part of a group called Adventures for the Cure (AFC) and am hoping to inspire some kids with diabetes with my story. http://adventuresforthecure.com/team...n%20Richardson

Oh, and I also love MUni! Asheville has an awesome festival you should check out.

Cheers!

Fantastic ride Ben, and congrats on your achievement, and doing it for a great cause as well! But since you did it back in late 2010, why did it take you so long to tell us about it?

Yesterday I did a penta marathon (211 km = 131 miles) in 15:40 on an ungeared 36"/128mm. This was my second century and the first metric double century.

The trip was about two third on unpaved roads. Initially I considered to attack the 100/10/1 challenge, but due to strong winds I had to let it go. I ended up in a 100/11/1 At least I still got something to aim for.
