BMX singlespeed ratio


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Who can help - what would the most likely gear-ratio have been on my stock standard 'back-pedal' Raleigh BMW have been, that I rode as a laaitie?


How close was that to the most common option amongst today's mtb singlespeed brigade?


Trying to get my head around a few things :rolleyes:

probably 44/16 on 20inch wheels = 55inch gear. Equivalent to 32/15 MTB gearing.



Thanks Velo - what would a 'typical' "middle-of-the-road" / not too strenuous :D ratio be on a mtb?

I'm riding a 32 / 18, which is easy enough for me except on steep hills. Tried 32 / 16 but that was a bit too hard on the legs.
