sensed difference with 4" change in gear inches?jrm

Using Sheldons gear inch calculator i calculated the gear inches for a 38T inner ring @ 37.0 and a 34T inner ring @ 33.1

Can someone tell how much easier a 34T ring will be to turn vs a 38T ring. I guess in terms of output?

Thanks...

Try shifting from your second lowest gear into your lowest. You'll have about that much additional perceived difference.
