    Sadly, the largest offering in the industry standard (White Industries ENO freewheel) is only 22t.

    reducing the number of chainring tooth will yield the same result, unless its a road cranks.

    39 sounds like you might be running the small ring from a road double, 39T / 22T is a pretty good ratio for riding off road. I'm over simplifying, but anything LOWER than 2:1 is worth a try. I am running 35T/19T which is roughly 1.84:1 and your 39T/22T would be 1.77:1, it should climb like MAD.... no real need for lower gearing.....in my humble opinion.

    Local terrain and 26/29 leave gearing suggestions pretty much meaningless here. Not to mention individual fitness / riding style.

    Personally I run a 36x24 on my 29er in the winter, but change this for summer. Not that this means anything to anyone other than myself. I ride pretty steep terrain. In the past, some people on this board have chuckled at such "low gearing," but I dismiss it as lack of knowledge on their part. Take it from a 3x Cascade Cream Puff 100 Mile Race finisher... one of those finishes being on a singlespeed (once was enough!)

    Everyone needs to find which gear ratio works best for them, their bike and their terrain.

    Wow SPARTY....... if you read slower you may find we pretty much agree..... I offered that anything lower than 2:1 was WORTH A TRY ( like a starting point from which one might find what truly works with their local terrain and riding style, personal fitness ect) and of course finished the whole thing off with IN MY HUMBLE OPINION, I was hoping that sort of speach might be enough to avoid a reply like yours, I was wrong.

    Sorry man... didn't mean to take you out. Maybe you know the OP is running 26"... I didn't and to me this point is critical when suggesting whether 2:1 is or isn't a good starting point.

    That, and I've grown weary of hearing people ridicule others &/or try to suggest what's right for the rest of the world based on what they do (neither of which you did... just sayin'...)

    Anyway, sorry if I came off like a hammer and made you feel like a nail. Not my intent... seems like sometimes I do that without meaning to do so. Painting with a broad brush... please forgive. Let's go riding.

    Can you please direct me where to get a 24 freewheel? I can't locate one, biggest one I can find is 22. 39/24 seems like a good starting point for me.

    I would happily direct you to a 24t freewheel if I knew of any, but I don't. My rear wheel is equipped with a freehub, so I use a 24t cog. Well actually it's a 24t granny chainring + GCA (granny cog adapter).

    Thanks SPARTY.....


    the granny cog adapter is a very cool idea.... I'd not seen that.

    along that same line of "out of the box thinking" I saw in the new BICYCLING MAG a cog that bolts to your 6-bolt disc hub so you can run the wheel "flipped" as a fixie..

    Yes -- TomiCOGs.

    Personally I don't ride fixed off-road, but a good friend does (Red Haze) and he's totally amazing at it. He will do 4' drops on a rigid fixed bike, or get up on picnic benches / tables, etc.

    Maybe someday... I used to think singlespeeding off-road was crazy... now I do it. But fixed? Got a ways to go before that has any appeal.

    oh nevermind I can only find a 22 tooth freewheel , only reason you would really need to match a 39 tooth was if you were planning on doing trials

    Those are chain tugs. They came with my bike, which I bought complete, but there are many varieties of chain tugs available on the market. One of the most popular is the Surly Tugnutt, which incorporates a bottle opener.

    Sparticus,
    If you have something readily available do you mind posting a pic of your entire bike?

    The photos were taken when it was new... 2 years ago. I've changed a few components since then.

    <table style="width: auto;"><tbody><tr><td></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family: arial,sans-serif; font-size: 11px; text-align: right;">From 29er Inbred</td></tr></tbody></table>Click the link on the right under the photo and you'll be take to the album with the rest.
