"The rain itself is no problem for me or my bike.  But Chicago in the rain is a problem; because of bad drainage and traffic, you can count on being splashed with oily water by cars driving through our massive puddles.  On quiet country…"

"46/20*27=62 gear inches.  That is a little lower than I would want for flat Chicago, and no higher than you run now (38?/16*27=64).  17 or 18 tooth would be better. BTW, (gear inches*pi) gives you the distance in inches that the bike will…"
