BMX Gear Charts

BMX Gear Charts

 

Most Pro BMXers Run Approximately 54 gear inches

44/16 gear ratio with 20x1.75 tire is the most commonly used combination in BMX 

For Exact Gear Measurement... Divide Front Gear by Rear Gear and Multiply by Tire Diameter

Example: 44/16 = 2.75 x 19.5 = 53.625 gear inches (20x1.75 tire)

 

These charts are for general reference - actual tire diameter varies from brand to brand

 

20" X 1.75" GEAR CHART (approx. 19.5" tire diameter) = suitable for any size rider
