I've just bought a 2012 frame and fork set new in the box, about two years late for this post! However, I,m about to build it and wonder what does the 39-17 ratio ride like?

At the track and even when cruising with the kids I like 39-18.

Re: 2012 26" OM Flyer Who Has One?

I just picked up a Chrome 2012 OM Flyer that was a brand new leftover off of eBay for $540 shipped!  I haven't taken it out of the box but I'd imagine it rides very similar to my 2014 26" PK Ripper.  I plan on changing the gearing to 37/17 or 39/18.

Finally built it up yesterday, went out for about 10 miles and three or four pints. Love it. 39-18 works nice, even on our Devonshire hills.

Wow, man, that is some pretty countryside.  Makes me want to break into song: I will not cease from mental fight/Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand/Till we have built Jerusalem/In England’s green and pleasant land.


We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; / For he to-day that sheds his blood with me / Shall be my brother ... / gentlemen ... now-a-bed / Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here / And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks / That fought with us

Yes, my chariot of fire on mountain green descending to pub of desire and a bloody long push back up to home.
