    50/19

    Always good to hear about another fixed gear rider in SC. What do you ride?

    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”

    Hey! SC people!

    I'm running with 48/16 at the moment. I'll soon be adding a cog to the other side to make those hills a little more manageable.

    I did it for a while, pretty fun. Plus, 46x18 is really fun, and 46x17 is good. Options!
