Just finished my fixed gear conversion on my Cannondale, and still working out
the bugs (see thread I wrote on re-dishing rear wheel). I am using a 15t rear
cog and 38t chainring, which seems to work quite well and is a good gear for
the variably hilly terrain here in coastal Hawaii. Only thing is I don't
automatically feel as if I am being forced to spin better (perfectly round
circles) with this combination. Should I go with a higher gear inch pattern or
a lower one to spin faster? Which will improve my spinning technique better?
Perhaps I should just ride down some of the hills around here and work it out
that way. Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.
