We have the 9 speed 12-36 on our tandem for a stump pulling gear (28 tooth front). It has so much torque I fear we are going to rip it off of the rear wheel on some bigger hills.

I mounted mine on the front fork at first then switched to the rear as the noise was a lot less hearable on the rear. You have to mount it exactly parallel to the wheel rim for it to be as quiet as...

My triple Ultegra set is care-free as well. I live in Pittsburgh where even a short local ride can require climbing a 12 - 15% grade hill. Simple math tells you that you can have a wider gear range...

Are you implying that the Gatorskins are Goathead proof? I thought Goatheads did not discriminate. Don't they occasionally even take out a car tire here and there?
