    great gearing for this city, just wish it equated to more skid patches.

    I have to say, as someone who's been around this forum for a while now, I'm seeing a lot more diversity in what people run these days here. I swear, it used to be everybody ran 48/17 give or take, and any deviation from that got attacked by the fixed gear forum keepers of the gate.

    Nice to see some growth and progress around here.

    48:16, but my commute is moderately hilly, so i'm looking to drop some gear inches. my housemate swears by his 52:20 setup, which i've been thinking about switching to. however, i've got a fuji track with non-stock pretty much everything besides the crankset, which i'm fairly sure are 165mm, and on steep descends it becomes very apparent that the crank arms are too short, so i'm not sure i want to be spinning _more_ than i currently am. i don't really feel like getting a cheap crankset, but i've gotten the bike to where i don't really want to blow much more money on parts..decent cranks alone are probably worth more than the frame. should i suck it up and get nicer, larger cranks, buy mediocre, longer cranks, or just deal with it while spinning faster?

    43 x 15 fixed (75 g.i.). I have a 17t freewheel on the other side, but I can't remember the last time I flipped the wheel.

    I'm running 42x16 with 700x37c tires, which is 71 gear inches.

    Planning to move to 49x17, which will be about 77 gear inches IIRC.
