    Looking for a specific online gear inch calculator

    One time I came across a gear inch calculator tool online that let you compare different setups instead of just outputting one bike's worth. It also showed a graph of where each gear was and you could compare them visually.

    Anybody know what website has this thing?

    That one is pretty nifty, but it is not the one I am thinking of. Close enough though.

    I just made my own on a spread sheet. I can compare 4 set ups on my little laptop screen.

    All: This one allows comparison of two setups: http://www.kstoerz.com/gearcalc/compare/ Maybe it's what the OP was looking for.

    I don’t think Sheldon Brown is fading at all. If he was still with us I’m willing to bet his link would link to all these great calculators. In fact he most likely would have liked Mike Sherman’s page as it also computes Sheldon’s Gain Ratio method that takes into account crank arm length. http://sheldonbrown.com/gain.html

    I use the Mike Sherman link and do lots of A,B,C… comparisons just by opening multi pages. It also lets you bookmark them with the data filled in.

    He's not fading from memory, he's just not the answer to the question. Read the OP, he asks for a calculator with a comparison feature and graphs. Sheldon's site has neither of these.

    Yeah, but it still has everything you really need.
    That said, I've been referring mostly to this one lately. http://www.gear-calculator.com/# cause it's just so darn user friendly.
