Do you feel like you need to stay at 50cc or are you willing to go a little bigger... say 98cc?
The problem is in having a single speed capable of both 30+ cruising speeds along with hill climbing capability. Depends to on the grade and length of hills... a long steep climb takes either lower gearing (bigger rear sprocket) or more power. A bigger rear sprocket is at the sacrifice of top end cruising speed. How big a guy are you? Will you be pulling a trailer?
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
