In this recent thread regarding stopping fixed gear bikes several people have mentioned their choice of gearing for road use. It sounds like everyone is using a higher gear then me. I started using a fixed wheel for road riding in about 1973. The old timers that coached us advocated a 63" gear (42x18). I've stuck with that through my 14 year racing career and the 16 years since. What do you guys ride?
