I never took it back and always felt enough power. I now have two wheel sets. The 19'' rear wheel is mounted with a D756 and 50t sprocket and the road 18'' is wearing a 43t! Yes: I'm 16/43 for the road and the bike now loves taking the highway at 65 mph for hours.
I'd say that the 16/50 ratio makes the first gear a little bit speedy though. I'd prefer a 15/50.
Hope that helps

When I installed my 43t rear sprocket I had to cut a pair. I will check for the number of link tonight and post back later.

With the 13 there was no problems. The bike can really go slow, if you adjust the idle a bit on the high side, you won't even have to twist the throttle. This bike can chug its way in first on idle very easily. But as soon as the trail open up, this low gearing is useless. But then there are 4 more gears to go
I went back to the stock 14/50 set up, but I still keep my 13 for those really nasty rides .
