Think 49x19 is close.

A great training gear for men and boys. :)

Since learnt that for a 5.5 roll-out Cycling Australia specifies sprocket 18 and Chain Ring 45

Many Clubs quote 42x16 for their U13 rollout (>5.5) :roll:

Nothing worse for your little one than to have their moment of glory taken away from them!

Nothing worse than taking the little man out, and not being able to give him a run. :)

And it's even worse when your son can't race (boom, tish) :D

I was going to go with - "That's what she said", but think it's a bit overused.

49 x 19 = 5.46m
45 x 18 = 5.29m
42 x 16 = 5.55m
44 x 17 = 5.48m
