As most bikes are 26" wheel a 50 or 48 tooth will help get you to speed without ripping the guts out of the motor. And if there's hill to pull you'd most likely make it up without pedaling with a 50. The kits come with a rear sprocket that runs from 39-44 teeth with no way of knowing unless they actually mention it on the box
Read lots of stuff, ask questions, and have fun somewhere along the line...
I agree with you, I think 36 is a little small, I'll be riding mostly flat terrain however, I want the option to climb hills when needed so I'm thinking 44-50T.
Now trying to decide what kit in my price range. Thanks - Doc
