I'm 32 x 17. Bit spinny, but then I'd rather spin than push to save my knees! :lol:

I run 36:16, always have done. Single speeding doesn't feck your knees though or mine would have been goosed by now! When it gets tough to pedal - stand up. Sitting and doing the slow motion mashing thing is what can fook 'em if you're prone to that sort of injury.

:D

What ratios do you lot run to avoid tensioners?
32 16 on saracen. Axle isn't perfectly in drop outs but it hasn't slipped yet. 36 16 on khs chain is a little slack but i'm using ss specific ring sprocket and again. No slipping. I listened hard to perry's advice and have to agree that chain line and full depth teeth are more important than tension.
