What's the convention on this calculation of gear inches in the track field?
I note that a lot of people are quoting their gearing based on the 27" wheel, even though pretty much everyone rides on 700c. The difference may not be large, but it would appear that a good section of the track community are still living in the past, and out of reality with the equipments they use.
So what's the deal with this? Is the 27" wheel reference so deeply entrenched in track cycling? Or is there a move to face up with the reality?
