My Steamroller came set up 44/19, which makes going uphill easy, going downhill a *****, and is slow everywhere else. According to Sheldon's calculator 61.1 gear inches (For 700 X 25 / 25-622 tire with 165 mm cranks). So I'm aiming to move up to around 69 gear inches and there are quite a few ways to make that happen.
The stock Andel cranks have a 130 BCD and I see rings up to 50t available, so I could go 50t up front and keep the 19t in back for 69.4 gear inches. However it seems that most here are running 46t and 48t rings, is there any reason why going to a 50t would be a bad idea in this case?
