Default Re: Lower gearing options

I have a 36T on a bike right now that I paid $8 for and then drilled it myself it works great..!

I would not go with a 60T, if it were me I would go with a 48 - 50T, BGF sells the 50T on Ebay, a 60T will leave you with a very low top speed like maybe 15-17MPH or so, you would have plenty of power but no speed at all, I am 200lb's and I really like the 41T I also live were there are hills but it will pull me up a pretty good one and still run 20-25MPH when I get to the top of most of them, and about 15-18 on a couple of pretty long ones.
