2010 - what gearing for the trails?

Recommended Posts

currently has 13/50 fitted and runs out of legs in the open, i'm about to order some new wheels with sprockets/chain and wondering if their is a better ratio I should try.

Gearing changes are all about compromise.

I have 12/13/14 for the front, and 49 on the back.

I can change between these gearings by swapping sprockets and adjusting the chain.

I use 12/49 in the mountains, 13/49 if I am going to the park, 14/49 if I am riding trail for a long time.

Unfortunately with a close gearbox, you can't have the best of everything.
