- Niche? Show me your SS 26ers….
Sorry to jump on this thread but what ratio’s do you guys use?
Currently looking into making my old frame up into a single speed.
Is a 38t front and 16t rear to much for trails? Or is it to ‘spinny’ for road.
I intend to join a local road club for small 20 mile rides at a avg speed of 16-18mph. with the 38/16 combo.Posted 5 years agoyunkiMember
I’m running 32:16 on a rigid Soul, which for me is a good compromise for about 50/50 road/off-road use..
The road sections for me though are just a means to an end, and I prefer to ride fairly technical trails.. with this in mind I’m erring towards a 32:18 set up and aiming to reduce the amount of time on road as much as poss.. (cos it’s just no fun)Posted 5 years agoVortexracingSubscriber

Bit cheeky – as it’s now geared! Ran it 38 / 17 which was ok for local trail centre (Haldon) but too highly geared for my feeble limbs on the longer road climbs. Might be tempted back to SS with a 36t chainring at some point though; I like the lack of clutter.
