Gearing on a SS MTB

edited February 2009 in MTB general
Am building up a SS MTB (steel inbred with 26” wheels) and looking for some advice on what length gear to fit, as I’ve not done much mountain biking before (all looks pretty straight forward mind)

I ride a 72” fixed on the road (48 by 18 on road wheels) which feels like a fine ‘do everything’ gear for training and general riding in pretty much any terrain either on my own or with others who are riding on gears. I’m planning to do general trails and cross country riding on the SS, probably in the company of my mates who would be riding gears (in general these are triathletes and such, thus: fit, but not particularly handy bike riders).

Any advice welcome.
