52 x 13 = 108" Gear Kilo

4:30pm - Flying 200 Meter
52 x 13 = 108" Gear
Time = 12.75 seconds
Equipment - Tiemeyer, Mavic ellipse spoke wheels
Stung by a bee in turn two during this effort.

7:15pm - Kilo
52 x13 = 108" Gear
Time 1:20.65 seconds
Equipment - Tiemeyer, Mavic ellipse spoke wheels, aero handle bars (no aero helmet, disks or shoe covers)

I have no clue what it is about the 108" gear (52 x 13), but it feels just right in the flying 200, and now I have discovered that it works for the Kilo. It defies all logic, but it works for me. Of course I would never use a gear like this in mass start events, it is just too big to continuously wind up and slow down.
