It's a little wild offroad though.
For offroad, I have another rear wheel mounted with a knobby tire and a 48 sprocket. It is still fast for offroad though. i tried to go with a 50 but the same chain could not go over both settings...
at 16-44, there is quite a big gap between the 4th and 5th but i think it is still acceptable. The engine runs comfy at 80 mph...
I wander which setting would allow the highest top speed... at one point, it becomes so geared up that i guess the engine won't be able to reach top rpm... I never tried the 16-44 full throttle in 5th gear to see what speed could be reached...

You couldn't possibly use that kinda gearing offroad.....
Not on anything technical, just on fireroads. I will try 16/45.
