    Im contemplating whether i should modify my rear cog for a few gears. How do you guys setup your rear cogs? this is more so to drop unnecessary weight and simplify my ride. this will be for a px tibo.
    Also how well does a 24tooth front ring benefit over a 22t

    road cassette, smallest possible gear in front, except for a 16. thats a little too small.

    I have gears, I just cant change them. 22 tooth or smaller is the consensus for trials. Use the search function on the forum and you will come up with loads of info on different gearing for the front.

    I have a ghost

    I'll be running two cogs up front, a 22 and a 32, and one in the rear, an 18. An old derailleur just to tension it.

    I'll be manually shifting the front in the event I actually have to pedal somewhere.

    SS, 22 front 18 rear, sometimes 20 front 18 rear. As far as NATS rules, they're making ss legal for 2005, and at the beginning of this year my teammante and i were allowed to run ss in the Fontana series.
