    yo bros (and lady bros) how many inches are ye (a poll)...

    a gear inch survey if you will...
    don't know? go here: Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Gear Calculator ...make sure you choose gear inches, not ratios or meters developed.

    state your most often favored gear only.

    then the obligatory:
    Hi, my name is John P., I am a SSer.
    26"
    2.4, 175, 34x18 = 49.9
    mostly flat terrain, dirt jumps.

    your poll's for weenies, my roadbike's sitting at 92.
    (700x23, 180mm cranks, 56x16)

    my "bmx" (khs solo one softail) is at 69.2.
    (26x2.125, 175's, 40x15)

    who cares? some rat bastard who shoals, runs red lights and lane splits between cars (even when there IS a bike lane that I'm in) is still gonna get to work before I will...

    I'll figure out what the gazzi'd beach bike should sit at though, that should be funny.
    I was thinking 32x17 or 32x18... we'll see.
    oh, i hate spinning.

    I change my gear ratio almost weekly mainly due to racing. So it varies....right now i have it set for a cyclocross race tomorrow and have it at 40:16 (29er, 180mm crank arms)....your poll is flawed, I'm actually off your chart

    Yes, you're around 72 I think..so you should check "other"

    I am trying to find your most often favored gearing. Not your cyclocross race day stuff.
    Besides I read on your blog "I knew this would be the first significant test of my 3419 gear and I was fearing that I would have to walk a few spots."

    ahem...

    But its all good.

    The obligatory:
    Hi, my name is Wade B., I am a MtFxer.
    29"
    2.35, 175, 34x20 = 45.9 gear inches

    Mostly rolling terrain, some technical climbing

    I have been as high as 34X19 = 52.1 gear inches, but never got 'on top' of that one.

    PS: Rotor cranks
    This isn't a "you're doing it wrong" topic.

    I change my set up all the time for the varying XC courses in the mid atlantic region, but currently I'm riding 34x18 on my 29er, so around 55 inches. I guess the biggest gear I've pushed was 35x17 which is about 60 inches.
