    What gear did you use for that climb with that load?

    Can?t say with certainty, of course, after so long, but most likely 22 in front and 30 or 34T in the
    rear. We were spinning som pretty low gears, rode up from Nice to Geneva, crossing quite a few
    passes. Nice route, splendid riding, nice camping places, good food, excellent wine. There is a trip
    report here http://www.lowdin.nu/MTB/singletrack2000/Fr2000/France2000.html
