Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

what kind of cog for ss mountain bike

What kind of cog would be good for a single speed mountain bike? I am looking to have it so its easy to peddle up hills. I would probably use my stock chainring (on the easiest setting)

What combination would resemble an easy gear?

What kind of hub do you have?

Wheel size affects your gear ratio; what is your wheel size?

40 to 60 gear inches, pending on the terrain and your fitness levels. We need more information to make a decision for you.
