    I had a 55t ring for a while.

















    With a 22t cog on the back.

    Dude, this is a ret*rded ass question.

    The chainring is only 1/3 of the story- just like your stories of street racing on a 48/14 [26" wheel], the front chainring can be any size to get just about any gear RATIO and then all that rolls through the rear wheel.

    I don't do 48/14 anymore. 48/16 and sometimes 48/18 is good for me.
