Thats pritty much the same, so home that works for me!

yea i like the vapor tech, but i heard that the are not good in rain/ water.

Probely get the speed pickup thing out the wheel?? i dont know if you can get something for that tho..
Theoretically with a 112-link chain you'll have more even chain/sprocket wear with 47/15 than with 44/14 since the same tooth doesn't hit the chain in the same spot as frequently.

Reference here:

Regarding the VaporTech -- I've NEVER had an issue with moisture from rain / splashing water. That said, I've never drowned the bike.
