I recently got a Dawes SST AL as my commuter. I use it as a freewheel'd single speed, not fixed. The problem is that i feel like im spinning too much once im on a smooth open road. Its currently a 48:17 setup. Im debating getting a 16t freewheel but am worried it will make no worthwhile difference. Any opinions on the matter? moving from a 17t to a 16t freewheel?
Or should i just get like a 50t chainring? which will require a new chain as well. And which ring would you suggest? its just a budget bike. I prefer to spend the real dollars on my mtb.
thanks for any advice.
