Cool its me munny ol, need advice

well hello there (general kenobi), i need to pick your mind, yes you specifically you, no need to make it weird eh? well i bought mi self this money hole called a stretch manhatten style beach cruiser frame. i live in a hilly section of my state (bewilderment), a few kilometers away from the pleasant and smooth coastal path and as this thing is being built atm (well over the past year and off into the future, i are a poor), here's what it is. 26" wheels, with 18 tooth single speed, but i don't understand the whole chain ring thing, i usually grab a crappy kmart jobby for my meth affected neighbours to pawn. i have found myself just looking at shiney on the webs. will you help with some advice, please

My advice? If you are fluent in English, put some coherent words together and ask a specific question that someone might be able to answer. If you are unable to do that, search YouTube for videos that address issues you are having with your bike.

If your question is about chainrings… 18 tooth in the back is a good start for easy pedaling. The key with chainrings up front is to make the tooth count low. For example get a 44 Tooth and see how that feels. If you stick to the hilly area then you might consider going lower up front and higher in the back.

Come back and let us know how it’s coming along!

If hills are big and your not in your prime use the 22

if you want to go faster use the 20
