"2110: You'll wonder why you went with these gears." This made me laugh..
It sounds like no matter what I choose, I will never have the right gearing for every situation. I race Single Speed mountain bikes, so I am very familiar with these thoughts running through my head during a ride.
I am going to mess around with the ratio calculators, and maybe, see what it takes to use a reversed Subaru 5 speed, but i know the r/p ratios are limited.
