Well, with my current setup, my end gear ratio is about 13:1 and I can accelerate up a steep hill to about 25-30mph. Here's a gear ratio calculator if you want to plug in some numbers yourself:

I'm running the 11t max torque clutch to a 36t input on the jackshaft to a 9t on the output to a 36t on the wheel. With your 26" wheels... let me do some mental math here... you could get the same results with a gear ratio of 11.7ish:1.

Btw are you going to remove the governor system?
