14/49. I run a 14/46 and its about the same as my brothers 14/49. Just mine goes a little faster and doesn't wheelie unless I want it to.

The gearing heavily depends on what type of riding you're doing...

there should be a huge difference, 3 teeth makes a really big change.

All I know is for hill climbing, 14/49 is too slow in 2nd, and too fast in 3rd. My 14/46 in 2nd gear rocks. I can climb my bike better then my dad and brother.

o ok, maybe i misunderstood what you were saying. I got the feeling you were saying 3 less teeth made no difference.

It makes a difference but not a huge difference. In a drag race we stay side by side til he tops out, I didnt lose any low end power, expect "(my front end isnt as "light" as his)"
