What you lowest gear inches are is pretty much dictated by your terrain. While my riding is pretty much not very hilly, my lowest is a 30 front 34 rear. As the Boy Scouts say----------be prepared.

I strongly believe in Mobil 1 oil for my chains. Therefore I just wipe down a new chain and oil it. Then I always wipe down my chain before each ride, and the oil quickly disssolves the sticky grease.

No it does NOT. I consider them modern replacement for the 1890 DF bicycles. Except for racing, due to the antique UCI and mountain biking, 90% of cyclist would be better served on bents or trikes.
