You would have to pedal. I run a 36T and here in Florida there aren't many hills in my area. If I have some speed going into a slight incline it is not too bad. The idea (rule) of the sprocket size ....less teeth=more speed.....more teeth=more tourque. On my mountain bike set-up I can achieve 30mph with a 40T sprocket. Weight is also a factor. My "S T R E T C H" is a lot heavier than my mountain bike.
