Thanks Drew, that helps knowing your riding style. I may look into a 45, but really like how its runs down the highway right now with the 16/42. Hopefully you're getting some riding in this winter.
Probably a good thing its hard to wheelie, Im not sure I need to be trying to stand a 500lb bike on its rear tire and charging across some whoopers, and if it could I would
But the result would be.....
