since when is 44-16 a monster gear? thats the average gear ratio for the past 15+ years... true, i would rather have 2 smaller gears to lighten the back end up. a monster gear i would say is 46-16 or larger (like when i used to race back in the day)... ok, thats my take on things.

You must be younger than me. 44-16 was the average gear about 30 years ago. And some bikes were pretty heavy then. 44-16 on a 24" cruiser would be a bit of a workout though.

44-16 is far from monster. When I had my hoop-D I ran 44-14, it was actually quite good. If you call 44-16 monster gearing you must have weak legs.Now for the skate park 44-16 might be a little toublesome. Clearing some stuff might be a b1tch.
