My 29'er is new to me this spring and I rode out there this year a couple of times and I run 33x18 (1.83:1) and it is great for the climbs (almost too easy) but I long for a higher gear on the flatter sections on this trail and most other trails I have ridden so far this year.... I'm thinking a 2:1 might be better gearing (for me anyway).
You're right, I think I'd miss the taller gearing on the flatter sections. I also didn't realize until last night, that I hadn't given myself a rest day in 6 days, my legs were probably a bit worn out too.
