Gear Ratio Help- Mtbr.com

1. ## Gear Ratio Help

I have a 1997 Trek Mountain Track 800 Sport that is converted to SS now. The gearing is 38:17 I'm using the middle chainring of the front basically and put a new freewheel on the back.

Well my issue with the calculator is it does not have the ratio option all I can see is Gain Ratio and Gear Inches which to be honest I do not understand call me stupid if you want. So is there another way to figure this out?

Specs for calulator:
26x2.0
160mm (this is a guess for now)
Chainring: 38
Cog: 18

Thanks for any help on this. I have not taken the bike offroad yet I will on Monday to a simple trail as this is my first SS offroad.

2. Reading way too far into it

38 divided by 17 =2. something
38 divided by 19 = 2

If you want a touher gear get a smaller cog, easier pedaling get a bigger cog.

Dont worry about the other factors out there, just concentrate on your chain ring and cog
