Default Re: Big Guy

I'm 280# and carry about 30# extra on my back on average. 66cc with NT carb and Voodoo pipe. I found that I needed a 56T sprocket on my 29" wheel until I got the knack of tuning the engine properly; the biggest concern was adequate torque for the moderate hills around me, and the desire to avoid over-stressing the engine. I now run a 44T, and average about 27MPH on the flats and can top-out @ 32MPH which is PLENTY fast IMHO. I should note that this is my daily-driver...I literally ride it every day about 20-30 miles.
