Installed a new crankset and cassette. You have the best calculator for ratios. Easy input and results in both gear/in and PM.

Thanks

Just read you explanation of gearing ratios, and it was excellent. But a much easier way to compare is to just multiply cogs. Thus going in my case from a 52:42:30 triple with an 8 12:26 to a compact 50:34 with an 11 11:32 gives me slightly wider ratios over one less number of usable gears
i.e. top gear 52 x 12 = 624 on triple but 50 x 11 = 550 0.22:1 Higher. Similar calculation for granny gear, very useful where we live in the Lake District gives an improvement of 0.09:1

Thank you so very much for the excellent explanation of gears. Since the front derailleur has been a many year problem for me I was deciding to retire my large and small chainrings. Your thorough discussion of ratios has confirmed my suspicion that it really won't matter very much. Thanks again!

Hi
My wife has a De Blasi folding trike we would like to convert it to an e trike we know that De Blasi do supply an electric trike but not a conversion kit. Could anyone advise if it is possible to buy a normal conversion kit to drive the front wheel.
Regards
