I say 15t on the back will be the best, 16t will probably be abit too light.

Hope it helps,

Have a look to see what length cranks you have, if you have 175mm i would recomend running 18-15, but if you have 170mm cranks i would go for 18-16 (Y)

I loved 18:15 on my stocks, felt good for trials but you had something to push against (Y)

Currently reppin' 22:16 on my 24, which puts hairs on your chest when it comes to "real" trials.

Hello, I personally would have 16:14 to me that is spot on, not to easy not to hard. Its a nice ratio for when you are riding the rocks, because lets not forget rocks are what trials is all about. :)
