I'm still stock 15/45 gearing but upsizing the rear from 120 to 140 (/80-18) which means 4.9% longer legs. Instead upsizing from 15 to 16 front would've been 6.7% higher geared. It'll be interesting to see the impact. I may hold off to wring every last mile out of this tire. It's not dead yet.



We'll see if my Murphy Insurance pays off or not. LOL
