With the plethora of new wheelsets out there...wanted to revisit the question of gearing for SS - Single Speed and DMS - Derailleurless Multispeed Snow Bikes.

FYI, here is the original posting and discussion:

http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=265028&highlight=winter+ss+gear

Here is the calculator that I'm using:

____________

Given, 80 and 100mm rims with Endomorphs, 175mm crankarm

!st QUESTION:
what tire size would you plug into the formula for an accurate gearinch determination.

____________

The concensus in previous thread was for 'general' snow conditions ~ 38 to 40 Gear Inches was most useful.

2nd QUESTION: Any additional thoughts on useful gear combos for SS and DMS layups? Suggestions?

Quyana in advance....

29" or a little over. you could find the exact od of your tires by sitting on the bike and having someone hold a level across the top of the tire then measuring to the gorund from there.
