I'm looking to get a new crankset/chainring setup for my Surly Crosscheck. I'm a bit new, so sorry if any of my questions are stupid.

For now, I will be riding it as a single speed, but would eventually like to try out a geared setup as well. For the geared setup, I plan to run a single chain ring only.

With that being said, can I use the same crankset for both applications? If so, any recommendations?

what do most people use as a compact to race? 46/36? I replaced a crappy original part with a 54/34 which I think will be to strong for racing ... I would live in the 34. any recommends for a good compact racing setup. I did 3 races last year and hope to improve this year
sorry for mild hijack but i would suspect the ultimate compact would help with the gap fit on a single crank.
