Thanks for all the responses. My apologies on the misleading title, I meant to put "chainring size for a newer rider?" That was not me being a noob, it was the alcohol, hah.
Anyways, the gear does feel a little tough at times, especially on hills. I think a smaller chainring might be a good idea for a few months.
About the cog being cheaper than the chainring, I found Origin 8 chainrings on ebay for $20 shipped. From my searches for cogs, I am looking at about the same price for either one. Right now I have a no name chainring, so the Origin 8 would be a step up if anything.
