    front teeth / back teeth X over all wheel height = roll out. 52-56 inches is a good average roll out. the size of the tire inflated also influences gear ratio. so a 2.125 compared to a 1.8 will affect your pedaling effort.

    maybe. that must be hard.
    usually your supposed to have 23; 8
    i like to ride 24;8, so its a little harder.
    with a freecoaster i like 28-9 though, so i can pedal harder.
