If I could ride at 65 with the same RPM I'm currently riding at 55 it'd make the 300 a little more versatile to me.

I don't know if the 6sp will give you that, upper ratios aren't allot different, I probably just need to pickup a 450 or 525.
I gained cruise speed on top so I can run ~65 without getting buzzed to death. Some Flexx bars might help too. Having tighter ratios is big gaps like the XC/W had, so it was a good investment.

I'm running 13/51 at the moment; dropping a tooth in back might get me a bit more but I haven't had it on the trail yet.
