I have a 22t front ring, I used to use a 23t in the back but am quickly seeing the disadvantages of this, my next one down is a 20t, so I was just wondering if ti was worth going through all the trouble of getting a 21t?
22-18 just changed down from 22-17 feels a little soft for ups atm but better for natural rear wheel stuff gaps not much change. no idea how people ride such low gears feels like your hub doesn't engage at all
i always used 22-18 on my zebdi, got me lots of power and speed into the semi taps i do. but it seems like a failry hard gear now that ive gotten into other moves, my wheel comes off skinny things when gapping before i can put much power into it. i got me a 19t cog to use on my new frame, but looks like i'll be having to get a 20 as well, just to see what its like. i havent ridden my bike yet, still not finished. to those that use easy-ish gears, 20-18 and 22-21, is that the gear youre always on for big moves and taps, to tech natural and stuff, or do you shift every now and then?
I used to use a 22/19 and it was great, now I use a 20/17 because CK doesn't make steel KKs in 19t...Both of these gears are good, I find 22/18 too sloppy, like Bill said. What gearing was Cris Santos running in revolution on 231? that shit was torquey !!
