    Anyone take a look at the size of the chainwheel he is turning? Looks huge! See picture on page 60. Optical illusion?


    its prolly a 46 with a 17 in the rear


    The Feb/March issue of BMX World ran an article called “Gearheads” that told what the pros run. According to the article, DR runs 50-18 gearing and 170mm cranks.


    West Coast vs East Coast war BMX style.

    west -Big gear and Big freewheel to reduce friction and spin easier.

    east – Little gear and little freewheel to save weight

    In the end, the gear ratios are the same.

    Donny was running longer cranks when he turned pro, but then someone convinced him to go back to what he was using as am, since then he has been near the top. It was in an interview he did.
