    Assuming this is not a troll:

    The size of the sprocket in the rear I use kind of depends on the chainring I am using. The smaller the sprocket, the harder it will be to pedal the bike but the faster it can go. A larger sprocket will make it easier to push the pedals, but you will need to spin at a higher cadence to reach a given speed.

    See, this is why people should become well educated with the world of cycling, before entering the fixed gear continent. It is just a much smoother transaction.

    As long as they understand why someone spends $4000 to build a bike that resembles $100 Hi-Ten supermarket BMX they are just fine
    I got nothing to do
    you got nothing to say
    everything is so ****ed up
    I guess it's natural that way
