    Hi all,
    What gear ratio do you run on your 24" cruisers and why?
    I'm thinking of going for 26/10 as I like to get a bit of a workout!

    What about bra size to arm length?

    Seriously though, my question on gear ratio's was more about peoples preferences than a question on what do they mean. I'm just interested in what other people are running on their bikes.

    Though I do like bikini's.

    25/10 works great for me on 24s.

    25/10 but I'm thinking of going to something a little easier, I'm used to a SS mountain bike though.

    Tire size will make a difference, too. I run 40-17 on my cruiser with 1.75" tires and is app. 55.3 rollout.
