I haven't changed the gearing on mine, but I'd listen to what Bart said. These bikes barely have the power to pull stock gearing. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you lost a little top speed with a...

Try finding anything close to wrap-around that will support -9.75 sphere correction. I suspect I'll probably just have to go for the surgery at some point.
