The taller gearing might be okay with clubman bars, or even a Triumph Euro bend, but the aerodynamic profile of this bike is all wrong for tall gearing.
at face value and why I advocate people try things for themselves. 16/43 works great for me. I commute 110 miles round trip on my bike but it's still functional off road as long as it doesn't get to technical. That's my ride and what works for me doesn't neccesarily work for everyone else. You have to experiment for yourselve to find what REALLY works for you.
