I've been riding my fixed gear for about a month now (on and off). The bike I have is a Retrospec Beta (frowned upon in the bike community?)
I've got a few questions that I hope experienced riders may give a little insight on:
I want to change my chain ring and cog. I feel that my 48T/16T gearing is too tall and difficult to go up hills and perform wheelies with. What cogs and chain rings are recommended? I've been reading around, and Shimano and Dura-Ace seem like good brands, but quite pricy.
Is my factory hub of bad quality? You can find the specs of my bike @ http://www.retrospecbicycles.com/el-diablo-beta-fixie/
If the information matters, I'm about 5'8", 155lbs and my bike frame size is 49cm.
