I have 2 rear wheels... a single speed with 12 tooth sprocket and a close ratio (177 %) SA hub for the second. I also have a 53/38 110 BCD chainring set up in front. I use the single wheel in winter with studded tires since I don`t need much top end but the studded tires add a lot of drag so I like the low with the 38 for hills. In the summer the 3 speed set up is great for commuting up hills and in the heat. When the 53 wears out i will replace it with a 54 or 56, but the 53 gives me 84 GI which is prety nice.
