Re: Is there a market?
I run 50's and 48's on most of my builds. Living in Colorado with a 21% loss in power due to altitude means that climbing hills is more important than top speed.
With a 50 I can do about 22mph on a straightaway. With a 48, I can hit 25mph. Both are plenty faster than I can pedal. I used to run 44's but don't like the lack of hill climbing ability and having to do 12mph at idle.
