I love your bike man and hey, ride it anywhere with whatever wheels you like. You're right, some people are only sour grapes. You should put a tracker on it like I did so if it get's stolen you know where it is.

Thank you. Thank you for letting the wheelset go to a new home, hopefully a home where they won't be ruined by being ridden on the streets.

Major props man. I couldn't do it. I've been riding 52-17 for a couple months and I'm planning to gear down soon since I'll be riding downtown more often and with more hills.

55x17 is only 85.2 gear inches. 52x17 is only 80.5 gear inches. For comparison sake, 46x13 is 93.1 inches, 42x13 is 85.0 gear inches. I kind of get annoyed with this big ring trend because the people using them are trying to act as though they are pulling a heavy gear and they are not.

JSTEWART304 says:

Well it is a different feel. I've been riding fixed for almost 7 years now and have ridden several different sized rings and cogs. It really comes down to cadences for me. I don't care for a lot of spinning. And there are heavier gears even if your using a calculator to justify inches.

42x16 or bust!

pulling a heavy gear is dumb. people who run giant gear ratios just haven't learned to spin their legs. but to the credit of large rings, they do last longer, smaller cogs and smaller rings get tooth wear faster. so in all reality a big-big combo is probably better for racking up commuter miles. but also, commuters are meant to be junk anyway

sublime says:

How about having some respect for the craftsmen that designed and built the frame specifically for the track? And how about some respect for the craftsmen that built and designed those wheels specifically for the track as well? How about the fact that since it was designed to only turn left on an oval track, you have no toe clearance and could fall easily when making a turn? How about the fact that if you fall or get hit by something, the frame will most likely crack and become unusable? Please think about these things before you say something so idiotic as "i don't think so.does someone say that u must have sex on the bed". It's not the same thing at all, your dick won't crack if you fall whilst having sex with someone outside, will it?

you there's a 496Tri, which is a TT bike for the road. Apart from the dropouts, the frames are identical. And on the wheels, obviously there's a road version of the Comete, and it's not uncommon to see IOs on TT bikes.

So in the end, he could ride it on the road. Sure, it's not and ideal commuter for urban areas, but out on the country, I reckon it would be a lot of fun.
