Hi, Ive just purchased a beach cruiser for my wife and it goes nicely. Now shes gone a bought a baby trailer and so i set it up and we went for a ride. Now with the additional weight, plus wind factor, our thighs are burning!!
current ratio on the beach cruiser is 42:20 on 26" with crankbars at 7.4 inches long.
Now keeping in mind that this is a single speed beach cruiser, how would one go about making it easier to ride, now that she has the trailer on the back. do i decrease the size of the front crank sprocket and increase the rear cog ? how many teeth am i looking for to make it easier yet not so much that her legs are turning and she aint moving. Also if i installed shorter crankbars on it would that make a difference?
