I also did the metric, we’ve been doing the Udder for years. Living in Crystal Lake, it’s a great location. This is my first RAGBRI, so I’m feeling better with the comparison you make. I’m still a little concerned about the famous Iowa 4H’s (mostly heat and hills).
Thanks for the input, I really like the part about putting some between the spokes. However, I’m still having trouble visualizing how to put it on the derailer. Would you have any pictures by any chance?
