Re: Noob From West TN
A 41 or 44T sprocket is a good choice for most applications. Either will give you good hill climbing abilities and a reasonable top speed. Rule of thumb: The smaller the sprocket the higher the top speed. The larger the sprocket the better you'll climb hills but sacrifice some speed. Think of a car with a manual transmission. The lower the gear the better it will accelerate and climb, the higher the gear the faster you can go but loose some low speed torque.
Good luck, ride safe.
