32t front and a 13t rear, how would that pedal? Got a set of XT cranks that I didn't end up using and want to build up a dj with them, and a spank single speed converter comes with a 13t cog so anyone know how that would pedal?

I went from 32:16 which was way to much spinning. I went down to a 24:10 which ended up being perfect for me. I also have 175mm cranks.

That combo gives you right at "64"...get that size by multiplying wheelsize by front gear size, dividing by rear gear size. Most people say "55" is a good midpoint. Any higher, less spinny,... less than 55 the more spinny as the # decreases. I like a ratio around '60' where I ride because flat, very little hills.

Try it out with what you have. If need drop a 14t on the rear and you'll be at about "60"

Exactly!

25/10 w/ 165mm cranks. Looking to change to 30/13 though.

25/11 would be very close to 30/13 (as you can see in the chart: 59 gear inches compared to 60 gear inches). Cool

Yeah I said 25/10 not 25/11. I also dislike micro drive. I would run 32/14 but I have a singlespeed hub and just plan on getting a 13t driver

Hi, was wondering if anyone out there could shed some light on gear ratio for my son's 'new' 2nd hand (ABD derelikt) DJ bike. Currently running 28Tx11T and finding it slightly highly geared to get over the top of gear. Does anyone know if this rear sprocket can easily be swapped out for a lower gear or is it not possible?

Without looking at the rear hub up close, I can’t say for sure. Usually, 9t, 10t, and 11t on a cassette hub are one-piece integrated drivers, while 12t and up are traditional cassette cogs that can be easily switched. It may be easier to switch the front chainring/sprocket down to 25t. 25/11 would be a normal ratio.
