A Conversation for Bicycle Gearing


Post 1


Actually, ratios below 1 are possible (and common).
On my own bike the lowest gears are: 24(front):34, 24:28, 24:24.

Ausnahmsweise, wie üblich (Consistently inconsistent)

Yes - that's true. My lowest (on one of my MTBs) is 26:26, but there are mountain bikes, and recumbants, with lower ratios.

Maybe the editors can still change it to say "one or even lower"?
Also, I used a grey background in the table, not italics, to accentuate the duplicated ratios. I wonder if anything could be done abut that. I think it stood out better.

Apparently, the color tag is not supported in GuideML. I left it in. It was removed by the inhouse editors.

Hi LÒÒnytunes,

Thanks. I should have checked the GML manual pages.
