Gearing

If anyone is wondering about 13/50 gearing I can tell you it really is nice for single track and hill climbs. You can ride the bike more in 2nd and 3rd. A quick downshift to 2nd in the middle of the climb is no big deal and the bike tractors nicely. I would say for hilly single track use 13 front and for dual sporty stuff 14 tooth is great.
