    After reading a bunch of posts about different combos, I went with the 16/45. The ride was much smoother, no bucking back and forth when getting on and off the throttle, but this combo was too much for me (215 lbs). It lagged coming off a dead stop. There was a noticeable loss of power throughout the gears. I kept the 16t up front but changed the rear back to stock 47. This is the ideal combo for me. I can now make a turn from a stop without feeling like I have to shift half way through, but still have plenty of power. It is a pleasure to ride. I commute and ride a combo of city and highway. You will like the 16t if you are riding on the street most of the time.

    Check out JT gears online for a ratio chart.
