Very very little. 12 to 11 is a 9% change, assuming constant cadence, you will go 9% faster, while putting out 30% more power.

Aerodynamic power requirements at low speeds (less than ½ the speed of sound) are proportional the cube of the speed.

Depending on your condition and flexibility, you might be faster with 12T instead of 11T, especially if you are a "spinner" rather than a "pusher". In addition to the excellent information on the site PK provided; you need to know your own power curve - cadence vs power or force output (rpm vs hp curve for an engine - you are the engine) to figure out gearing for specific conditions.

Well sure. But what kind of gearing should I use for going MORE than half the speed of sound? Hmmmm?

Solid fuel rockets generally don't have gearing Smile
