When I had my '03, I ran a 15/49 in the desert. During the warmer months, I would switch to 14/49 for MX tracks and trail riding in the mountains.

Yeah, I'm going to buy a -1 front sprocket. Cheap and only take a few mins to change if I dont like.

That's roughly the same as 15/48, and I used to run a 15/49 without much trouble. The problem is very low speeds work, of course, with that tall a low gear, but I used to get along with it OK.

Im running 13-51 just changed it from 13-48 and it is great for tight trails and climbs you have power right there at all times top speed blows but not many places hear to use top gear anyway. If I was smaller under 225 or so I would say 13-49 or 13-50 would be OK but I'm just to big for that gearing if I had a 5 speed is go 12-48
