gear setup
i am currently riding a downhill frame (trek bruiser), i ride it to work everyday and occaisionally do some downhill or offroad riding. i have a 28 t chainring on the front and an 8 speed cassette on the back. i only ever use 3/4 of the gears at most and want to change my setup so it is less complicated i.e. less to go wrong. i only have the one chainring so i have chainstays on the top and bottom of the chainring. i was thinging of going single speed or redusing the rear cassette to 6 speed. i would like to get rid of the chain stays. Does anyone have any suggestions?
