Default Re: sprocket change project

it's nice being a short, skinny guy (but watch out, i'm scrappy!)

i'm running a 32 (thanks jim) and i can still make hills, with only a slight bit of bogging.

since i'm pretty much going for all out speed, i'm thinking of dropping down to a 30. by "thinking," i mean i'm gonna do it.

i started with a 36, and wouldn't even bog up steep hills.

eventually, i'll probably build a stripped down racer with a 20 or something. pedal it up to speed and just tuck and hold on...
