Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

freewheel size? 16, 17, 18??? brooklyn/manhattan

so i've decided to go with an iro bike, but need an opinion on freewheel teeth count.

this question is a good one for people living in new york city as they know the terrain i'll be riding on.

it's be a freewheel bike, a 62 cm with a 175mm crank.

any advice would be greatly appreciated.

uhh...chainwheel size makes a big difference here

and for flat ground, 48/16 would be easy but still decently quick
