    search.

    but. 17 would probably be best. 71 gear inches, a lower gear so you'll have to skid less because it'll be physically easier to slow the bike w/ your legs. and 17 skid patches if you do skid.

    but for realz. search.
    If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research.
