Since there are so many types of bikes IGR, belt, and gears, I have resorted to doing timed runs with the bike to determine how high the torque is. I throw it into the highest gear and ride on flat ground.
If I wasn't comparing bikes I would just use the gear ratios or use a gear calculator(still confuses me slightly).
Is doing timed trials on the highest gear effective for determining which bike has a higher gear ratio? I gather I am not factoring in wheel speed differences considering some wheels are faster.
Alternatively a tool would be nice that would help but I am guessing they are rather expensive.
