    I run 46:17 on my fixie, soon to be 46:19 (moving somewhere hilly). 2:1 is rarely an appropriate ratio, on or off road. If you swing over to the MTBR SS board, you'll see most of them running 32:18/19/22 or something along those lines. They think 2:1 is steep. And most fixed gear road rides think it's way too small, which I agree with.

    46 Chainring, I have 13 thru 20 tooth cogs depending on my mood & training intentions that week. I've been running an 18 & 20 lately to work on spinning & that's been a lot of fun. I haven't changed the speed of my training, just increased the spinning, up to 165 to 170 cadence on the flats.

    42x16 on my fixie
    32x18 on my mountain bike. Though I have never taken it on the trails since I have converted it. May drop down to a 16.

    Presently 52X17 (81") in a rolling urban/suburban setting with a 800-1000' dynamic range.

    I took a long time getting to 52X17, playing with 47t and 48t chainrings and 16t, 17t and 18t cogs on the way.

    This winter I might go back down to 47X17 (72") for the control it offers.

    Chicago may be flat, but I've forsaken my masher ways. Plus it is my first fixed so I kind of just took a shot in the dark on the gears.
    Can we just make this thread sticky? seems like a common question

    42x14 right now. 700c. 175mm cranks. i only ever rode in one gear on my geared bike so i just picked whatever that ratio was when i built my fix.
    but i'm thinking of making it 43x14 so i have more than 1 skid patch.

    48x17 IMHO the perfect city gear.
