Default Re: gear or not to gear?

I prefer geared builds to improve acceleration and reduce cruise speed RPM, which is pretty must all you can expect as gearing will not increase "top speed" over a single speed build, provided the finals are the same.

It does add complexity, maintenance & cost, whether it's "worth it" can only be decided by the builder
