I'm headed out for a ride in just a few...headed to Blissfield to get a covered bridge, then back to Peggy Sue's for lunch. Here's my intended route:

I reckon it'll be 2ish by the time I get to Blissfield, probably closer to 3 when I reach Peggy Sue's, if anyone wants to catch me and ride along...or just meet for lunch.

heres my number...740-tree oh for-one 5 niner niner

The smaller tire has less power-sapping mass and the smaller diameter keeps your gearing about the same as stock.
I may give that a try, seems reasonable. I know I run a skinnier rear on my mountain bike when it's muddy; helps get down through the slop to traction not to mention lbs of weight per tire square inch.
I do plan to gear my bike down a little at the same time. It's about due for sprockets & chain anyway. I'm trying to decide between 47&48/14. Not quite as low as 43/12, but a little lower than stock. In theory, the larger cogs should make the chain last longer as well as keep me off the swing-arm slider thing. Probably just go with a decent O-ring chain. I hate that the bike will go faster in 5th than 6th due to not enough power to pull the way too tall gearing. I find I generally end up slowing down when up-shifting to 6th. I think 1st & 2nd could stand to be a bit lower. I'm also finding I rarely use 6th around here, it won't even pull these paved hills, so may as well make 1st a creeper gear.

I run 13/47 and love it. Great on the trails and will do 83mph in 6th.

#1 killer of the chain guide is running the chain too loose- especially if you're running highway speeds.
