Climbing has not been a problem at all, except that I can't get out over the handlebars enough to keep the front tire on the ground! :-)

For gearing my 426 has 14/50. For the pavement it's working too hard at anything above 45-50 mph for any real distance. If your going to ride a lot of pavement I would start with a 15/50. Gearing depends on how much dirt VS Street your going to ride. As well as what speed your going to be going on the street.
For the front tire I would look to the Dunlop D606 as well. I ran a TrackMaster II up front and it worked good on the street. Not so good in the dirt. Come to think about it. I think the Dunlop D606 tires front and back would be a solid choice. Not the cheapest but a good set up.
