    29er Gear Inch Guru Needed

    My current ride is a 26er. I run a 34:16 ratio. I am building a 29er this off-season and would
    like to run the equivalent of this ratio on my 29er. Is there a 29er gear inch chart that I can reference? Or a formula that I could use? I would like to make the conversion as accurate as possible.

    That's a good quick chart. OP: FWIW you can add two teeth to your rear cog to get roughly the 29er equivalent, so it would be 34x18. It's just a ratio so if you wanted to run a 32T in front:

    32/x = 34/18
    x/32 = 18/34
    x = ~17

    ...so 32x17.
