My perfect setup I reckon would be a 34T. The only reason I haven't done that is my crank seems out of balance, which starts to matter at speeds over 38kmh, or 4300revs.
It's the speed I want out of the bike so it's ok for now. Maybe later when I have time I'll play with it.
On my bike that has 24" wheels Im running a 30T has plenty of power and will cruise good at 30-32mph wnd tops at 36mph on the flat and has seen 40.2 gps' d mph on a slight declining road, I would like to get it to wn extra 3-4mph cruise speed and Im thinking the 28T may get me there on it but I wont know unless I try.

I hwve another dax better balanced lower in the works for that bike so if it turns out as good as my current one, vibs at high rpm are not bad at all.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
