I'm going to try out a 29er SS tomorrow and I wnated to know what would equate to a

32-16 and 32-17 in 29er gearing.. thanks
I'm assuming from your question that want to know what gears -- on a 29"er -- would be equivalent to 32x16 and 32x17 -- on a 26"er. The answer is you need to lower the ratio by 10% to get the equivalent gear.

If you're used to 32x16 and 32x17 on 26"ers, then on a 29"er you would find 32x18 and 32x19 to be roughly comparable.
