    street gear ratio?

    what would be a good front chainring to go with an 11t on the rear and 24" wheels for street/park riding? im currently running a 16/36 on my 26" dirt jumper not sure if that is what i want either :s any suggestions?

    cheers in advance

    My cruiser's gearing is 39-17, about 2.3:1. It's good for accelerating but you're spinning really fast pretty soon. You'd probably want about a 28 or 30 to go with your 11t cog, depending on how much you enjoy pedaling really hard.
