    Are you guys able to detect a one tooth change in the rear?

    Are you guys able to detect a one tooth change in the rear? My current 32x19 is a bit too low. Do you think I'd notice any difference going to 32x18, or should I go at least to 32x17?

    Good job! Yup.

    Used ta didn't think so.

    Now I have ENO 32 and 34 tooth cranks on two bikes.

    32/19 on one and 34/20 on the udder. 34/18 fixie didn't work out. I'm still playing with em.

    Big difference involved concerning one tooth difference in the rear! Perhaps like 2-3 diff. in the front?

    I used to run 32X18 but went up to a 17. BIG difference trying to make the same hills but switching from 175 to 180 mm cranks seemed to even things out again.
