40/15 fixed gear with a 16 tooth freewheel. Thats a gain-ratio of around 4.9-5.3 or barely 70 gear inches.
I know that 42-15 is a popular non-track combination, but on my road bike that's my "having a really good day, here comes a tailwind gear." I also like to spin a fairly high cadence.
Does anyone else (excluding SS mtb's) run gears that low?
Am I missing anything by using lower gears?
