There are so many threads on gearing in the last week alone, but here's the deal.
Google a gear inch calculator. I forget if you want it easier or harder when it's freewheel, but you probably want about 68 - 70 gear inches. You can get decent speed, but you won't be crippled when you go up hills. As you get into shape and learn to spin better, you'll be able to go faster and climb better, and then you may wish to go up.
