I'm confused. I think.

I said " I can look at a bike, see it's chain ring is under 50 and realize I'm going to be pedaling like an idiot and doing maybe 9mph. "

And you said that's not true(?), but your chain ring is OVER 50 (in fact is a 53), so you confirmed what I said.


BTW, 406-53-11 is 90 and that's prettyy good. I've rereplaced my cassettes with 11-32's.
