i run a genesis io with an alfine and 26" slicks and cable tied on mudguards to work everyday and its ok, if heavy.
i fancy a crack at single speed commuting, which should shed some weight off the bike and also make me work a bit harder. i have another freehub rear wheel and some surly cogs etc. what gearing do you think would work? theres only one hill, and its not too savage.
i have a 44t, 40t, 34t and 32r front chainrings, and 16t and 17t and maybe 18t rear available. on a mtb ss i like 32/16 or 32/17
