What I want to do is go with a low gear for the technical stuff, and a taller gear (taller than the 32x20 on there now) for flats. I may be able to switch between the two without dropping the tire, but even if I do have to drop the tire, the flight has a QR so it won't take long.
For those not sure what a dinglespeed is, its a two speed bike, with a twist. Basically, you have a low ratio and a high ratio, but both have the same total number of teeth. This keeps the chain the same length so you don't need to move the tire or use a tensioner for the different ratios, just move the chain to the other set and ride.
I really like SS, but Boyette especially shows the limits. You can cruise for most of it, but need some good short gearing to make some climbs. I don't want to have to mess with a cassette, derailler, shifter, cables etc. So I'm going to try a dinglespeed and see how it works.
Does any bike shop locally carry a decent selection of SS cogs and spacers?
