Gear ratio for racing
what gear ratio would u use for racing on just about any track out there
Lost in the Black Hills
Try www.danscomp.com then look for sizing chart then gear ratio
i heard 41-15 is good (but it takes strength)
as far as what i would do, i would go with one of the standard ratios...like either 44-16 or 39-13,
Dans Comps Catologs have the ALL the ratios so you can decide which one is best for you and whatever/how ever you ride...
although i would not suggest going below a 28/10
i'm running 43-15 cause thats all i could get my hands on...i got jacked on ebay for a 2 speed freewheel, sent him the money and never recieved my item. its ok though, i got a suntour freewheel and that sh*ts sick!!
i'm running 45-16...been racing for 8 years, riding that ratio for about 4...works beautifully. get a decent gate and keep your speed through the track, no worries about spinning, especially on downhill tracks (i.e. south park)
