Using logic inverters for a clock pulse

I was wondering what the forumula is for finding the frequency of a clock pulse generated by two inverters in serries. Is it just about what cap and resistor you use, or does the inverter play any roll in determining switching speed? I have always used the 555 timer, but now that I am learning more about digital logic, it seems like inverters are a much more simple option.

The inverter used has much to do with the success of an oscillator.

The 74HC14 and CD4069 are considered the two better chips to use for making bicore or multicore timers.
