I am going to convert my surly steamroller into a cross bike (not for racing). There are lots of fire/logging roads around here that i want to explore with this set up. It is the stock 47:19 setup which works pretty well on the road. What size gears do you guys run on your cross?

38/16 for now, though it's really not too far off gear-inch wise from 47/19 (64gi vs. 66). I've found most SS cross people keep their gearing in the mid to low 60's on average.
