    Got the 16 tooth sprocket on and for my type of riding, it's the BEST thing! Having the speedo read correctly is a major benefit too.
    I commute at least 300 miles a week and live in the country so rarely get into 6th gear now. 6th is like an overdrive...i like that!
    I know it's probably slower but I'd never know as a I hardly ever "get on it".
    Did I mention I like this bike? ��
