    42/15.
    By far my favorite of the 6 or 7 ratios that i've experimented with.
    48/17 comes in a close second, which is slightly higher than my 42/15.

    I'm I light guy so I find that I can spin up most hills (even big) unless theyre really steep without leaving the saddle.
    Especially if I'm using clipless.

    BTW I don't take my fixed on tough climbs that are more than ~3 miles in length; i'd usually be on the road bike.

    I think that in the future I will possibly lower my gear whilst maintaining avg speed. (or maybe increasing).
    I only say this because I'm starting to learn that my strength is high cadence spinning as opposed to high gear mashing.

    i ride 48/17, but i dream of that 2.8 ratio. i can't afford,/ don't know how to shop for a new chainring. but i know that 42/15 is the perfect ratio.

    In gear inches...

    65/75 fixed and fixed on the touring bike
    65 on the mtb
    77 on the road bike
    78/100 on the other road bike - gotta change the chain ring and chain.

    53:11 is about 127 gear inches depending on tyre size... I want to see someone push this gear anywhere besides down a hill.

    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
