I have a 32/20 now and was wanting something easier for climbing, what could I use? I think my gear inch is 64.3 if that makes a differance
Point made; but what does this post have to do with a dingle anyway?p nut said:Unless you're riding a 49er, 32/20 combo does not give you 64.3 gear inches. (nobody check my math--just making a point.)
There are some steep trails that I sometimes ride and usually drop down in the low 40's GI. That's 33/32 x 22.
So basically, to get lower gearing to aid in climbs, get bigger cogs or smaller chainrings. Press rewind if I haven't blown your mind.
EDIT: I'd officially like to cast in my vote to start a "dingle" subforum. Where all the dingle dorks can mingle, dingling their dongle.
Two things:aka brad said:Point made; but what does this post have to do with a dingle anyway?
A dingle for 32:20 would be 30:22; not really sure how stupid it would be, but it would be a very low gear.p nut said:Two things:
1) Gear down rather than going dingle since he's already at a low 32/20 anyway. Setting up a dinkle at 32/22 is stupid.
That's only if you dingle all the time; something that needs to be avoided for obvious reasons.p nut said:2) Dingle guys never get laid.
I'm not fluent in dinglese, but doesn't two cogs also count as a dingle? Should he able to run 20 and 22 without having to mess with the chain.aka brad said:A dingle for 32:20 would be 30:22; not really sure how stupid it would be, but it would be a very low gear.
Don't remind me.umarth said:They also never get syphilis.
A true dingle involves changing the gear ratio without changing the tooth count. This allows you to manually change your gear ratio without having to mess with your brake adjustment. Also, if you are running a tensioner, unless you have a Melvin, it is doubtful it would be able to handle more than 1 tooth difference.p nut said:I'm not fluent in dinglese, but doesn't two cogs also count as a dingle?

I'll await the report.Joe V said:Will do, like I said, I havn't even rode it yet, just put my Fuel in that gearing and didn't like the steep hills and bailed to a smaller front gear
