that is low. i used to run a 42:16 on my ss road bike and that was ok for road so maybe try a 42:18? aesthetically i think a bigger ring up front would work better too.


42:18 on a 29er singlespeed mountain bike? You've got to be joking, yessir :shock:.

32:20 would be more like it......

I love retro parts on a modern bike.
