if you don't mind the question....what's your inseam and your crank length? i'm 30" inseam and trying to decide whether or not to stay long on Omnium or shorten it up. :) thanks!

I think I have the same, but I run 165, & I'd stay with it. The only of length I've ran is 172.5 & I can for surely say that was insanely too long. But then again it's personal preference! If you enjoy sprinting or tricks - 165 preferred, & 170 for long distance. 165 is more sought after, easier to sell back! Hope this helps(:

yeah, i've been riding 165 for a long time and it's nice for the off the line and durations make it seem like i'm actually accomplishing something xD thanks for the comment and glad it's from your experience. i've been going back and forth as to whether or not make a jump. i'm comfortable with the 165. plus i don't get seat hopping either with the 53/19 i'm running

If you run 170 for a try I can guarantee more power! Though 53 /19 is a lot. I run 49/16 or 17 on all my bikes that I use generally 24/7:P do you run it with a brake? I'd do that. I live in sf, so many hills to climb!

i'm in chicago, i run brakeless. i'm possibly the one of very few in a handful of cats who actually "mash." i've had a girl messenger yell STOP! when i was mashing through one day. i felt kinda bad.

53/19 feels like a 34/14. it's not so bad. i can def understand the need for a smaller ring for hills if you're climbinb. climbing up the CHI river bridge here can be tough but it's not so bad. on the more chill days i like to run 48/17.

that was my curiosity. it was "more arm will give me more power." i may try it out when the weather frees up. maybe i'll post my bike up with both insights in the description :)
