So I'm trying to figure out what chainring/crank to put on my fixed gear. I know what brand I'm getting, Sugino Messenger, but I don't know much else. What is the normal amount of teeth for a fixed gear and how does this effect the gear ratio? I checked out the Sheldon Brown website, but it only served to confuse me more.
I do not know if there is a standard toth count but I around 46 or 48 might be most comon. it splits the middle between 42/52 or 39/53. but I think it is personal choice. for some reason, I guess because it is to be ridden off road my Fantom Uno only has a 38. I am going to put a 42 atleast on it soon.
