    Depends on the engine .. the Duomatics have a range of 136% .. so you would gear your low range for the hill you would least want to walk up and then your top gear would be 136% more..

    I don't live in the city of SF. I have the gearing at 48/68 gear inches. Good for the mellow around town rides I do with it. When I do big hilly rides, I choose another arrow from the quiver.

    I hope you can talk your buddy out of that hub. I love the simplicity and elegance. It's built like a tank, too.

    Sorry, no trade. I like to ride in style, even if it's to the market.

    And, by the way, how come you didn't offer to trade when my Moulton looked like this -



    Hmmmmm??!

    Because at that state it was only marginally better than the Mu ;-)
